the US Open. I only ever went for the first time last year and did have quite a good time. As a former commuter on the Port Washington branch of the LIRR, the hordes of people heading out to the Open always rubbed me the wrong way. But I like tennis and it was a gorgeous day, so why not? So when I was asked to go out early this year for a preview of the dining options, of course I said yes. Not that I would have the disposable income to eat in any of their fancy restaurants, but maybe you do and want to know the highlights from my meal.
Chef Morimoto and Mark Bittman in attendance. I was instantly excited to try the seared scallops from another one of the restaurants, Mojitos, because look at that plate! It looks fabulous! During the preview, my table kept missing the scallops, but did get freshly prepared plates by the end. Unfortunately, they looked a bit better than they tasted. They were a bit tough and rubbery, possibly due to overcooking. Not that I wouldn't get these per se, they just weren't my favorite thing of the day.
