SF needs to schedule an intervention. Plebes might not notice much, but we do, oh we do 32 - 33 - All...

And again, I repeat, get a levain cookie Levain are nice but they make you sick if you eat the whole thing. Much prefer Bouchon for baked goods. I prefer Toto Ramen to ippudo. Having spent so much time making stocks, and working for someone who basically made his name on the thoroughness of his stocks, I can say that Toto Ramen...
David Burke makes some great food but it is mainly like him... fat and fairly unsophisticated. It has a lot of flair and is refined in its own way but the man is a bit of a philistine and it shows in the food. Still had some great meals there though, and I maintain that he has the best "Steakhouse" in Chicago, maybe in the US, even though it looks like a restaurant in an airport.
Go to Toto Ramen. Seriously. It's the best ramen I've had in the US. Get the chicken... absolutely delicious. The pork over rice side dish with the yuzu mayo (and you know I don't usually eat mayo) is beyond good.
Love the morel dish matt.

Binge, you could instantly improve the appearance of your dish by slicing the pork.
