We took friends to 3Tides last night for dinner. Including Greg, there were three seafood eaters in the party, so we had a veritable smorgasbord of shellfish on the table including a dozen Pemaquid oysters, Northport rope grown mussels cooked in garlic and wine, fresh crabmeat quesadillas in addition to our usuals. I also added the pear and fresh greens salad. The bonanza of seafood arrived with great fanfare and was promptly gobbled up with lots of lip smacking and laughs and smiles. Our friends were amazed at how tasty the oysters and mussels were and kept saying how they had to spread the word. One of our guests is hosting a rehearsal dinner for her son's wedding on Friday, a clam bake down in Camden, and she lamented the whole night that she hadn't known about 3Tides before. My pear, feta cheese, toasted pine nuts with greens was delightful as was my usual chicken quesadilla. The decadent chocolate cake from "Let Them Eat Cake" in Belfast was the perfect complement to a perfect meal.
It was so refreshing to sit out underneath the huge Moss awning on the deck listening to the rain beating overhead while we gazed at the water.
