Sequoia is one of those spots I tend to take for granted because it feels like its always been here. Back in the day, I knew it mostly for its weekend happy hour which drove in a nice crowd on a nice sunny day. These days, I will forever remember it has the stomping grounds of my last birthday celebration which entailed great friends and finger licking good fried oysters. Loving all things full of heavy cream, I tackled the Spaghettini Carbonara topped with an over easy duck egg. Even if you decide against the menu, which can take you along the pricier side of things, you should go for drinks and take in the waterfront views. Inhale, exhale, just relax.
