    Don't worry, I was sure to have a word with the chef about this travesty.

    Last night was my final evening in New York. Had a going away dinner with my fiancee, sister, mother, and sister's boyfriend at Daniel. After four years of eating in New York (including at all of the other NYT Four Star and Michelin Three Star places), this was, dollar for dollar, the worst fine dining meal I have ever had. Bland (salmon that tasted like nothing), over-stylized (extra components simply muddying the water), improperly prepared (huge bone in my ceviche), and lacking both precision and excitement. Pacing from hell (45 minutes between some courses, 45 seconds between others). Services was painful.

    What time were you there, and where were you sitting? Sorry to hear you had a bad experience.

    I'm not sure what the meat is, but it is very difficult to get something that thin to brown nicely. If it were brown, it would look a good bit better. The sauce looks very nice.

    Having BBQ'd rib eyes tonight. I rub them with garlic, sea salt and fresh ground pepper and let it sit for a few hours. Went to the Farmers Market this morning for fresh tomatoes, basil, etc.

    Should be a nice evening to eat outside, it is about 80 degrees right now.

    Right. It's tongue. I cooked it yesterday the way the Le Cordon Bleau cookbook describes it. Went to the fridge though because we didn't want to eat it yesterday. So today I put it in the pan on low heat, I actually didn't want it to get crispy because I wasn't really sure whether you want tongue crispy. It tasted very good, very tender. The sauce is espagnole sauce, a simplified version from Le Cordn Bleus' cookbook. Reduce veal stock, thicken it. Add some finely chopped mushrooms and tomato paste (I think I added a little too much but I don't really know how it's supposed to taste..), let it simmer for a while, then strain it.

    What the fuck could this possibly matter?

    Very lightly colored for an espagnole.

    Chill out, dude. I was only asking because I was there last night, as well. And maybe I saw him, or he saw me.

    So, nmprisons, did you see a young man with a very stately air about him at dinner last night?

    I'm sure he took his old buddy woolf91 (or whatever his screenname is) so that he could back up whatever MM said.

    woolf1991 was just there to stand guard from internet peoples; by the time they'd gotten to Daniel he was already full on a Wendy's triple stack combo with a large Coke and fries, and medium Frosty.
