Date Night in Capitola!

Tuesday, December 21, 2010
Over the weekend, the weather was pretty rainy and Jeff and I wanted to get out of the city. I suggested Monterey, and Jeff countered with Santa Cruz. Off to Santa Cruz we were! We had found online a great restaurant for dinner on the beach (mind you it was pouring rain and windy) and headed out. What an adventure! The weather definitely did not let up and we had a very wet drive down to Santa Cruz. It ended up that the restaurant we had chosen was actually in Capitola. Capitola is this darling little beach-front town right by Santa Cruz. We had dinner at Paradise Beach Grille and it was amazing! We started with some delicious cakes (crab cake, salmon cake, and shrimp cake), then I had the seafood pasta and Jeff had seared tuna with a coconut/macadamia nut crust. Everything was amazing! We both decided that we have to go back and see the town in the sun because it looks like so much fun (plus, it's right on the beach!).

Durante il weekend, io e Jeff avevamo voglia di (1) andare al mare e (2) uscire dalla citta'. Abbiamo deciso di andare a Santa Cruz e abbiamo trovato un ristorante sul mare (anche' se pioveva molto e c'era molto vento!). La guidata per andare giu' non era molto bella - c'era molt'acqua e Jeff era molto bravo a guidare anche se le condizioni non erano perfette. Siamo arrivati a Capitola che e' una citta' piccolo appena fuori da Santa Cruz dove c'era il ristorante in cui avevamo prenotazioni. Era un ristorante molto carino sul mare che era anche buonissimo! Per cominciare, abbiamo preso un paio di affari con il granchio, salmone, e gamberi. Erano buonissimi! Poi io ho preso una pasta di mare molto buona e Jeff si e' preso un tonno con una salsa un po' diversa. Tutto era molto buono! Abbiamo deciso che ci dobbiamo tornare quando c'e' bello perche' e' una citta' che merita!
