I’ve gone to City Island thrice in my life, as far as I can remember; twice in the past two weeks. From what I’ve noticed, City Island has two primary types of restaurants. The first type of restaurant that’s there is an elegant restaurant that is pricey for an unemployed college student such as myself, but knowing that it’s the last meal I’m going to have with a great group of people for an extended period of time, it’s absolutely worth going to, and The Black Whale certainly fits that extended bill.

Tonight’s restaurant review is for Goldfish, a seafood restaurant located in Ossining, New York.

For a mere $15, restaurant goers on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, can be treated to an excellent three course price-fixed meal. The first course features a choice of appetizers and salads including a delicious New England clam chowder, shrimp tempura, mussels, and an arugula salad. The selection of main courses that one could choose from includes many seafood items, such as shrimp parmigiana, seared sea scallops, linguine and clams, and other fishes including salmon and cod; all of which accompanying a starch and vegetable. Five desserts are available for selection as the final course; New York style cheesecake, biscoti, a chocolate pyramid, ricotta fritters, and a butterscotch pudding.

All in all, the food was excellent and the three course price-fixed meals on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays are a fantastic deal! Highly recommended.

Still continuing with the dashes as bullets, since I still don’t know the code. Onward!

– So first, a little bit of site maintenance news and out loud thoughts. I changed the banner! It’s now an original picture of my old Buick reaching 200,000 miles. Also, it seems like the tags feature is most appropriate for keywords, while categories would be used for the Quick Hits series, or any other series that I may eventually have on this blog. Next, I think I should create at least another page for the top nav that this design features. Maybe I’ll also try to figure out how to make it so there’s just a little bit of text on the front page per post and have a jump for the full story. I don’t know. We’ll see.

– Indian food is so delicious. India House for dinner is quite a different experience than for lunch because for lunch I’ve always had the buffet, and the chefs choose what’s in the buffet. Every time I’ve gone to India House, with one exception, it has been for lunch. For dinner, there is no buffet, so you’re on your own for choosing what to eat. So after a bunch of friends and I ordered in from India House, I must say we did a great job ordering. Saag Gosh was a smash hit, Murgh Do Piaz was great, and some of the mainstays such as Murgh Tikka Masala, Rogan Josh, and the pakora were also excellent. I’d probably eat Indian food more often if the local places in NY weren’t so expensive, and if I could find an Indian food place in Delaware.

– Here’s something I don’t understand: The last two times I’ve gone to pump gas were at two different stations, both of which being stations I don’t normally go to. At each of these stations, the price that was on the sign was considerably lower than their nearby counterparts. What’s the deal? Well, it turns out that these prices are for if you pay with cash. If you pay with your credit card, the price per gallon of gas is up to $0.10 more, which would cause the price per gallon to be more in line with the other nearby gas stations’ prices per gallon. Interesting, eh? Too bad I don’t carry $60+ in cash with me all the time so I can fill up my minivan on a whim.

– Latest music download: Bruce Springsteen’s Greatest Hits. I have never really familiarized myself with his music. I know that Born to Run, Dancing in the Dark, and Born in the USA are big hits and I’ve heard him on Q104 all the time. I think it’s time to give him a shot in my music library, and you can’t go wrong with a greatest hits album to get a good sample of an artist’s work. So that’s that.

– I can’t believe there’s a Barack Roll now. That’s hilarious!
