Celebrated my b-day at lunch, admittedly leading into dinner, on Friday with 3 of my best gal-pals (#4 you know who you are!). So happy to be able to pick my FAVE spot for the celebration…you know, of course, it’s Restaurant L! Went for one of the pre-fix 3 course lunch specials at $12.95, since my girls were already buying me several “Quincy pours” (read GENEROUS) of my favorite Peju Sauvignon Blanc. I began my feast with the most delicious, savory lentil soup ever, and followed it with pulled pork and frizzled onions on a ciabatta roll, and L’s crispy fries.  We went ALL out and decided to get a special dessert, which was TO DIE FOR!! How about a homemade blondie topped with a slice of cheesecake, caramel sauce, and oreo cookie pieces, with dulce de leche gelato on the side??? It was heaven. Oh, and a candle and birthday song sung by L’s beautiful server Tammy (who sings professionally…it sure beats the  voices of the disinterested waiters at those huge eating factories up and down Routes 17 &4!). So, yes, I admit we indulged a bit, but hey, it was my birthday!    XO Gayle
