OK, this wasn’t exactly an eating Tour de Force New Orleans style but some fairly delicious bites nonetheless…
Oxtail Benedict at Comme Ça – Oxtail meet Gut. Tender, delicious slow braised Oxtail, poached eggs, spinach, pepper gougère topped with a nice truffle Hollandaise oooozing with flavor. Very original and very delicious!
Bread at Bouchon – If only I had a Bouchon Bakery near where I lived. Did not love the meal but greatly enjoyed this bread with butter
Octopus at Milos – If you don’t add the $10 supp to the $20 lunch here you should be sentenced to a lunch buffet. Some of the best Octopus I’ve had in the USA. Meaty, tender, perfectly grilled, perfectly seasoned with a hint of oregano, absolutely delicious Octopus
Huevos Estrellados at Julian Serrano – The most memorable tapa was probably the Stuffed Dates, but when I look back and think about which dish gave me the most pleasure, it is the Huevos Estrellados. Egg, Chorizo, fries! whats not to like
Pastrami at Todd English P.U.B. What a surprise off the bat. Nicely carved, delicious homemade Pastrami served with your choice of bread and sauces (try the mustard trio and truffle mayo
