In the last 15 years or so I can only recall perhaps 5 occasions on which I consciously chose to overeat. I tend to not eat big amounts, and it's quite special when I actually take in more than I need. This happened at Bouchon. Duck confit... exquisite skin, perfect meat. Braised pork shank with cabbage. Just incredible. Butternut squash puree was heavenly. Pommes Puree sucked, barely touched it. I left quite stuffed. Highly recommend. The French bistro has and will remain my favorite venue for food. Other highlights that I'd never had before were these Brussel sprouts at Bobby Flay... they had the typical lardons but with pomegranate. Beautiful sweetness and acidity. It was a side dish but I'd eat that for a whole meal. Some of the food there was nice, would go again.
