Post-baby friendships

We've been asked if we make it out of the house since having Abby enter our busy lives. The truth is that we make it out of the house and we do so often! The other night, we went to Koh Samui and the Monkey with some old friends from BCG.
Gathering of good friends
We've been there before but haven't reviewed it so we'll put in a review here.

Koh Samui and the Monkey
(Thai food)
Restaurant Review - Positive
415 Brannan Street
San Francisco, CA 94107
(415) 369-0007

What we ate:
Soft Shell Crab Salad
Mango Catfish Curry
Seafood Clay Pot

Overall, this is decent Thai food at a good price for Soma. For some reason, Soma has a lot of pretty pricey restaurants so it's nice to find a place to go that doesn't really break the bank but is tasty. The special Mango Catfish Curry was awesome but I wasn't that impressed with the Seafood Clay Pot.

Other than that, we have also been out to Circa which is co-owned by a friend of ours.


Restaurant Review - Positive

2001 Chestnut Street
San Francisco, CA 94123
(415) 351-0175 Reserve Online

What we ate:
Sliders stuffed with black truffle and Brie cheese, served with Maui onion strings and house made ketchup 13
Lobster & white truffle mac-n-cheese 10
Moroccan spiced roasted Australian rack of lamb "lollichops" Mint chimichurri and pomegranate molasses 18

Review: I thought that the food here was really good although it is a little bit on the pricey side for the amount of food you get. I was a big fan of the mac-n-cheese and Albert will tell you that I just love sliders (I just have a thing for small burgers). I also liked the fact that although it is a bar/restaurant, it was quiet enough for us to be able to talk like normal human beings. The crowd is distinctly "Marina". I've also heard that this is a cougar-den but I can't say for sure since I'm not a young single male that cougars would target.

Special thanks are in order to my mom for looking after our little one while we tapped into our pre-baby selves. We definitely feel more human after our nights out and love Abby more for it.
