For our last meal in NJ, Abe and I took my Mom out for dinner…

…crossing the border into Rockland County, NY. The restaurant we chose, O lar, is a teeny tiny gem – this oven took up most of the place!

They have a partnership with Stone Barns, one of the last places I visited with my father, so of course I honored his memory with some fresh veggies. Started off with a Salt Roasted Beet Salad – frisee, toasted pistachio, ricotta salata, and cava vinaigrette.

And finally – Paella Valenciana with saffron arborio, clams, mussels, shrimp, calamari, scallops, and chorizo.

I ate all the vanilla gelato, leaving behind the cinnamon, and most of the espresso.
