Where is Ken Frank?
Ken Frank has opened La Toque at the Rancho Caymus Inn
in Rutherford. I haven't had a meal there yet. The
reports of which I'm aware are that his kitchen
is producing good food, but not yet at the level
that you would expect from him. In other words, a work
re: Tom Armitage
I had quite a good meal at La Toque a
couple of months ago. The food is very
much in the classic nouvelle tradition
of his old La Toque on Sunset, without
the jazzy stuff he was trying at Fenix.
A prix-fixe menu, swell wines to go with it:
his old standbys of crisp potato rosti
with caviar, seared foie gras, composed salads.
And the best, airiest sauces a la minute
