Enjoyed a wonderful pre-Mother’s Day dinner with my family at a little out-of-the-way French restaurant tucked away in the hills around Santa Clarita. We started off with (upper right) the #escargot (the only way to kick off a proper French meal!), then followed it with the (middle right) #softshellcrab. Both were divine!  For an #entree, I went with the (right) #lobster fricassee. To wrap thing up, we had pre-ordered the (lower left) Grand Mariner #soufflé, a perfect end to a lovely meal. Thank you @tish.trask!

Grabbed dinner this fine Saturday nite @labohemeweho with my sister. We started off our meal with a trio of fine #appetizers.

We followed that with the (upper right) yellowtail sashimi crudo prepared with jalapeño, garlic, ginger, scallions, ponzu & extra virgin olive oil. We finished up with the (bottom photo) #asperagus wrapped in beef.

After a series of fabulous appetizers & veggies, expectations were high when Kyra, Matt & I were brought our entrees @republiquela. I have to say I won the lottery with my spectacular beef short rib with grist & roll black barley, porcini mushrooms and roasted carrots (lower right). Unbelievably tender and an exquisite mixture of flavors. Kyra selected the (upper right) Sonoma Duck Leg Confit featuring sweet potatoes and roasted beets with a blueberry-peppercorn sauce. Delish!!! Matt went with (left) the roasted chicken, which smelled divine. Everyone needs to check out this restaurant. A brilliant dinner @republiquela (my favorite restaurant) with Matt & Kyra. We started with (lower right) fresh baked bread & Normandy butter, followed by (upper left) Gioia #Burrata Toast with #broccoli #pesto, toasted almonds & wood sorrel. We moved on to two amazing #vegetable dishes, (lower left) #cauliflower prepared with bloomsdale spinach, sweet potato, harissa, lime yogurt & almonds (truly sublime) and (upper right) #brusselsprouts with Thai farms arugula, salsa verde & Drake family #goatcheese.

Grabbed dinner @grandcentralmarketla after visiting the #museumoffailure and explored downtown #LosAngeles. Fun night!!!
A delightful dinner with a delightful dinner companion @hatchethall. We started with a #salad featuring garlic dressing with Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs (lower level, center); followed by the restaurant’s specialty—cornbread with shishito, cheddar,  cultured honey butter and sea salt (Lower left). So tasty we could have had it for dessert. For entrees, we had the diver scallops with country ham vinaigrette & parsley (top left) and the best pork chops I’ve ever tasted (top right). For a side dish, we sampled the hasselback potatoes with roasted garlic aioli & wood herbs (lower right). All in all a splendid meal! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Enjoyed a sumptuous dinner with Wendy Zocks @toscanabrentwood. As we sat down, we were treated to a medley of fresh vegetables (left center photo). For an #appetizer, we sampled the #calamari alla Griglia, grilled to perfection and served with greens (Lower right Photo), followed by a burrata salad (Upper right photo, creamy #mozzarella with bib lettuce & tomatoes). For her entree, Wendy selected the Petto Di Pollo ai Carciofi (Lower left Photo), a sautéed chicken breast with fresh #artichoke hearts; while I went with Brasato al Barolo (Upper left Photo), a Brrolo braised brisket served with #mashedpotatoes. Excellent service, charming location, delightful company. All in all, a nice evening. ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #bestfood #bonappetit #buzzfeedfood #finedining #food #foodart #foodblog #foodblogger #foodgasm #foodgasmic # #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #foodlover #foodpic #foodpics #foodporn #foodpornshare #foodstagram #goodfood #huffposttaste #lifeofafoodie #whatieat #wheretoeat #yougottaeatthis
