Last weekend we celebrated late birthdays, Les and Jan's 30th anniversary, and our last dinner together before we meet up at the end of June at the Rome airport for our ride to Umbria and our PalmabellasItaly trip!
After prosecco at the Wolf's, we began with appetizers at the Tea House and Wine Bar in La Quinta. This is a fairly new restaurant, we had visited once for appetizers and a glass of wine. The name is a little confusing, as I , along with many, assumed it would be Asian food. The menu is actually a combination of "European and Fusion Pan Asian". It is a great place to visit for appetizers, a full dinner at moderate prices, a $7 glass of wine, or a cup of tea! Menu items include a "Tuscan stuffed pork porterhouse", red snapper with Szechwan spices, and grilled duck breast. Word is spreading fast with the locals, but for now, there is no problem getting a reservation, or walking in and finding a table. Many "snowbirds" have already left the desert for the summer.
Jan and Les shared a crispy duck pizza:
Brad and I shared lobster quesadillas on crispy wontons with bechamel sauce.
Brad enjoyed his grilled duck breast with baby green beans and parmesan mashed potatoes.
The other three of us ordered the rack of lamb. It was delicious with a mustard-panko crust, and grilled endive with grapes! It was also a bargain at $19.
