14th Wedding Anniversary Dinner at Sierra Mar, Post Ranch Inn

The Devil Dog celebrated his 14th wedding anniversary with his lovely wife Alison at the always spectacular Sierra Mar. This exceptional restaurant is the centerpiece of the Post Ranch Inn property, a masterpiece of design and function by architect Mickey Muennig.

With sweeping panoramic views of the property and the ocean, Sierra Mar offers a prix fixe dinner of four courses that is as innovative as it is amazing. A selection of ahi and kampachi tartares is complemented by a fantastic curry mussel soup, and a trio of guinea hen preparations is as sumptuous as it is delicious. The wine list is simply something to die for. We have a Stony Hill '91 chardonnay that was a beautiful amber color with incredible Burgundian complexity, and follow it up with a Rochioli Riverblock single vineyard 2002 chardonnay.

The evening swims by in decadent splendor. The Devil Dog and his lovely bride retire to their cliffside paradise in the Pacific Suite and continue the celebration....
