What did you eat last night for dinner? - Page 1338

FTR, that is not exactly the TFL version, which I have made many times. It looks very nice, though.

Not? The picture I've posted was from a blog post about a dinner at TFL (not my picture, if that wasn't clear). Dated back to 2008 though, IIRC.

Hah, OK, then they changed it a little from the book. The book came out a long time ago, 1999, I think.

I ate at Baco Mercat again the other night and tried a couple new things that were really good, namely the panna cotta that FG had recommended. I'm not much of a dessert guy but, holy crap, that was good. Also had a fantastic japanese eggplant salad, and some fresh made pasta with goose confit topped with a fried egg. No pictures, sorry, but a good meal and very affordable.

^ Ugh, I didn't have a chance to try Baco Mercat the last time I was in L.A. although it was high on my list. Really want to check it out.

Baco has good food. It's one of a few places downtown that are great.

I have to say that lobster and potato are quite beautifully cooked. I don't always like when maxim gets burnt to a crisp.

The almond cheesecake with lemon curd is one of the best desserts I've ever had

Yes. If it doesnt come out when I remove the tail from the body itself, I just remove it from the bottom with a pair of my mother's tweezers.

For that matter, the banana cream pie I had last time was pretty damn good too.
