ICOB and Rosa Mexicano this weekend

Last night 3 of us went to Island Creek Oyster Bar to celebrate wife's birthday. A huge shoutout to Tom, the General Manager and Kelly, another Manager, who provided EXCEPTIONAL (I had to put that in caps) customer service as well as all of our servers. The food was also outstanding. None of us did the raw oysters but we tried the oyster sliders, a complimentary bowl of steamed little neck clams in a delicious broth, the lobster roe noodles, a lobster risotto special and two excellent desserts, one a chocolate brownie molten lava thing and exceptional apple fritters. Great atmosphere, Great service and excellent food. Can't wait to go back!

Went to Rosa Mexicano on Saturday night not my choice but was being taken out so I can't complain. All in all, good not great. Table side Guacamole with homemade tortillas was excellent albeit expensive. Nice frozen marguerita. Three got tacos, Ahi tuna, Filet Mignon and Fish tacos, these were reasonably priced for 3 tacos and everyone liked them. I ordered the Short Ribs and they had to be sent back as they were extremely tough and chewy. They took the short ribs off the bill and gave me some fish tacos instead and were very good about it. I wouldn't rush back but it wasn't bad.
