When's cardoon season?
post #5478 of 7194
Last year, I think I first saw them at Union Square (and repackaged from Union Square and doubled in price at Eataly) in mid-late October.

What's the deal with farmed bay scallops?

Taylor?
post #5483 of 7194
Yes. Are they good?
post #5484 of 7194
They're not bad. Get them if the price isn't ridiculous.

100 for $50. I am guessing wild is better.
post #5486 of 7194
it's kind of a complicated question: wild scallops are probably better quality, though taylor is a terrific aquaculture company (i buy their oysters all the time). the problem with wild scallops is how they're harvested. if they're not hand-harvested ("diver" scallops), they're collected by huge mechanical "rakes" that are dragged across the bottom and damage or destroy anything in their path. if they are hand-harvested, they are going to be very expensive. this is one case where aquaculture is probably going to be a significant player. plus, by farming filter feeders, it can actually clean up areas rather than increase the pollution. a good buddy of mine works for taylor and he's about the most knowledgeable seafood guy i know. i believe tom douglas uses their scallops, so they can't be that bad.

Going to Taylor for oysters and wine during happy hour was one of the highlights of my Seattle trip early in the year. (I'm guessing we're talking about the same place.)

I think this has been asked before, but I couldn't find it. Can anyone recommend a nice restaurant to have a dinner for around 40 people in Los Angeles? Not *too* expensive and would prefer if they had a private room or could rent the whole restaurant out. Thanks

Dear styleforum,
Please plan my wedding out, but make it nice. We like nice things. Thanks. If it helps, I'm in LA.
