Very true but something about this just struck me as a bit over the top. Still don't know what a margarita nitro is. Hell, what's a plain nitro?

It's ice cream made using liquid nitrogen to quick freeze it so there are no ice crystals, making it silky smooth.

It looks like a plate full of Dippin' Dots.

It's the same technique.

Anyway, it looks like a great meal. Just wayyy too much aeration.

Exactly, which is why overall, the dinner lost some points. I suppose, it could be argued it was used as a "technique theme" for the dinner, but it comes off more as "I just learned this technique, and I'm going to use it on everything," which I know isn't the case with Michael. Again, I'd chalk it up to him trying to make a menu he thinks "Top Chef" viewers are expecting. I bet if he went more classic, people would bitch about how he didn't do anything special, like on the show. When my friend mentioned finding a hair in the spinach at the Bazaar, he did have a good quip about how it probably belonged to Marcel.

for breakfast today I was in the Mexico City wholesale vegetable and fruit market, and had a couple of tocos - bifstek and sausage, and a watermelon shake. fucking incredible, for less than 2 bucks.

Beet salad with chevre and toasted walnuts, butternut squash risotto, and half a bottle of J Lohr Cabernet Sauvignan (hosting vegatarians for dinner).
