oh hello.....friday night at corso

hmmmm. well, contrary to the original plan that i had tweeted about, we found ourselves at corso on friday night instead of cesar. not that i am "whinging and moaning" about being at corso. not at all. i think dear hearts....most of you know that i've paid many a lovely visit to corso since they have opened and fully continue to do so.

the dishes we ordered on friday consisted of one of the specials of fried fish....

as well as a few dishes currently on the regular menu..... such as the sweetbread meatballs....

the bone-in pork loin....


the artichokes (naturally)....

and desserts.......


yet, i received a bit of a surprise when the person that brought the desserts was the same person that waited on me and the best friend a couple of weeks ago....during our dinner and a show visit. as she placed the desserts down she recognized me and said "oh hello! how are you?" i mentioned that i was fine and asked how she was doing.

sigh.

i suppose this is what happens when the foodie hunter visits places she really likes over and over again. the whole anonymity thing starts to slowly creep away.

maybe this isn't such a bad thing. well, maybe not a bad thing for certain situations. i mean, i go to these places because i really enjoy and appreciate them....whether they are neighborhood places like cesar and corso....to the more out of the way places like kim huong.

does this mean that i'm going to bust out my identity any time soon? nope. not at all.

admittedly my semi-anonymity it is kind of odd at times. for example, when tastetv sent out a link to my sf chocolate salon flickr pics in their press release, or when sam over at becks and posh linked to me, or when san pellegrino posted some of my pics....etc. etc. and everything is credited to "foodie hunter" rather than my "real name" . this is because still want to keep a lock down on my identity. yet, i'm not certain how long i'll be able to keep the semi-anonymity up for.

i suppose only time will tell.

Until they have someone working at Corso who decides to comb the postings online about it and then realizes-- hey! this is what the person who comes relatively often had last time!
