savory souffles?

PseudoNerd Jul 8, 2006 10:26 PM

Where could I get a good savory, preferably vegetarian souffle? I have something along the lines of a tomato-basil or cheese souffle in mind.

And if there are excellent dessert souffles available, that'd be great too! ^^

    Dessert souffles - Grand Marnier at Arroyo Chophouse; chocolate at L'Orangerie and L'Cachette; hot one at Roy's, Grand Luxe - a la mode.

      Souffles...yum! I'm eagerly following this thread for more ideas. Arroyo is a bit far for me, alas!

        Few will believe this, as almost everything else there is mediocre, but Panera Bread's souffles are very, very good when fresh from the oven.

          I had a Meyer lemon souffle at JiRaffe a couple of weeks ago, and I thought it was delicious.

            Morels has a good cheese morel souffle. Believe it or not. Everything else there is not very good.

                Tissue: Are you talking about the MORELS steakhouse at The Grove?

                I've never had vegetarian souffle, I'm curious to try that.

                As for dessert souffles, I really enjoy the chocolate and raspberry souffle at Off Vine. I also love the Chocolate Bento Box at Matushisa/Nobu, which isn't really a souffle, but tastes similar. My friend swears by the one at Mi Piace in Pasadena, but I haven't tried that.

                  Mi Piace is soooooooooo bad.

                    On Melrose is a place called Chocolat where Moustache Cafe used to be. They have a good chocolate and a good grand marnier souffle
