Ladies Who Lunch... with Their Bridesmaids: Part II

Unfortunately our original lunching location didn't work out. So a couple weeks ago Mama Frenchie, Auntie S, BM J and I went to check out The Crab Catcher. How could we choose a lunching menu without tasting the food? (Please, we'll take any excuse for a ladies afternoon of good food and shopping).

It had everything we were looking for:
1 - Nice Ocean View - Check!
This was the view from our table!

2 - Yummy food - Check and check! (Sorry it's half eaten. The food looked so tasty we forgot to take a picture first.)
POACHED EGGS LA JOLLA - Southern style blue crab cakes with old bay spices, topped with poached eggs and spicy remoulade

COBB SALAD - Mesclun greens, marinated chicken breast, avocado, tomato, bleu cheese, smoked bacon, egg and a red wine vinaigrette
3 - Yummy Desserts - Check and Check!
Flourless Chocolate Cake 

Chocolate Covered Strawberries
4 - Lunching area with a view - Sorry I know this picture isn't the best, but we'll be seated at the table closet to you and the one with the innocent bystander in the black shirt. We really wanted to sit next to the window but they could sqeeze in 18 people, understandable.
These two table will be joined by a square table in the middle, it will look a little like a doggy bone. Our other optiuon was to break the group into 3 tables, but I really like the idea of everyone sitting together.

After my first shower this weekend (post to come) this whole wedding thing it starting to feel more real. I cannot wait to spend time with my ladies and family the morning before our wedding... and the view, champagne and yummy food won't hurt ;-) Also, since our wedding is inland I'm glad I'll get a chance to show the ocean off to some of our out of town guests.

Are you planning any wedding events near other areas to show off your town?
