Billy Joel at Prime
Billy Joel was one of the first to dock and dine on Memorial Day at Huntington Harbor's Prime Restaurant. Arriving to the dock in his Downeaster, Alexa, a 36-foot fishing boat and the title of his 1989 song, he was joined by the vessel's namesake, daughter Alexa Ray Joel, plus friends including pet pug, Sabrina. In the spirit of the boat's heritage, a lobster/swordfish hybrid boat built on a Maine lobster boat hull, the party ate mostly seafood led by Captain Billy's order of a dragon roll -- king crab with sliced avocado and barbecued eel -- and a spicy tuna roll. While the party was shaded by hats and porch with a view, pug Sabrina, kept her own low profile sitting quietly under the table.
