I also discovered another hidden gem this weekend. A fabulous summer hangout/restaurant/bar down the street from my house. It's about 2 miles away, right along the sound. It's called the Sunset Grill..and the weather Friday and Saturday were so amazing it felt like I was on a patio on vacation in Florida. They had a guitarist playing melodic classic tunes in his own sort of unique style. I spent Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday night hanging outside there..it was fabulous. The crowd for dinner were your usual local rich yachtsmen & women..but at night the crowd was a little more chill. Below, a picture and video from the grill..

Tonight I made an awesome Tofu, Tomato, Basil Pasta with some farmers market cherry tomatoes. I cooked the tofu, onions and pepper slowly drawing out the juices but got a little impatiant towards the end and the tomatoes and pasta ended up a tad under-cooked. But it was delicious anyway. The tomatoes were so tough and juicy they wouldn't quite wilt down..but were still good. I also got the bread from the farmers market..the local New Yorker had me sold..especially the guy sampling some with fresh mozzarella and arugula pesto!
