    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Went to former Laundry chef Corey Lee's new place in SF on Tuesday, Benu. It's sort of like COI, but with slightly less abstract courses... COI 1.5. I'm sure Bauer will lick Lee's sack and give it a 3.5 or something. 2nd night they've been open, so slight service issues as expected, but the food is 90% there.

    Went with the tasting and pairings:

    Nori crackers:

    Hah, I actually got the reservation last minute; checked OT that day at work, and it looked like they either had people cancel or opened up some spots. I'm probably going back 9/22 once they're really in the grove. You should come. And looking at OT just now, there's a spot for 2 for tomorrow at 6:15.

    For 1, and $110 for wine pairings. I think it was barely worth it, but for $120, which was the original tasting menu price, it would have definitely been worth it. I guess they realized they could squeeze out and extra $40 for opening week. [​IMG]

    Mayonnaise covered baked eggplant, Pasta pockets stuffed with wild mushroom ragu in a creme fraiche/Jersey tomato sauce, sauteed broccoli chop, with garlic, onion and fresh herbs from the back porch and a shiraz.

    T

    peel medium eggplant, slice into 1" slices, cover both sides with a swoosh of mayonnaise, place on baking sheet and cover tops with parmegiana and fresh chives. Bake in 475 oven for 15-17 minutes. EASY!

    Wow. So you dropped $500 on the whole meal with wine pairings for 2? Did you leave a $100 tip?
