Los Padres...

The Last Supper - A fitting theme for the final dinner of our third Los Padres season.  The Streelmans chose to honor the final day of famous writers, singers, and historical figures by recreating their last meal. One of the most creative and elegant meals we have had in all three seasons.  Every dish was thoughtfully researched and prepared, the stage set for each stunning course by reading the history of the inspired last meal.
