That's what I'm planning, but I figured while I'm out there I should try one or two good places. Will be there the first week of April, so hopefully I can taste some of them infamous West Coast vegetables I hear so much about. Thanks for the recs.
I sort of agree, though they are separate complimentary elements which should be separate from the main element of the dish, so the rim serves its purpose. More bread is served on the side on a bread plate.
