Norman's and Le Deux
Going for anniversary dinner to Noman's. What should we definately not miss and what should we avoid ordering?
Has anyone been to Le Doux for dessert? We were thinking of trying it out after Norman's. Thanks!
Since it's Friday there is their Pig Roast, but I assume you've opted for the regualar menu. Last time I was there a couple of months ago I started with their Beef tartare, then the Jerk Spiced Rubbed and Pan Seared Turbot with Chorizo, Mangoes and Curry Emulsion. Both of which I would very gladly order again. My dining partner had their Veal Chop which I tasted and we both concluded it didn't really work as well as everthing else, so classify this under "avoid".
Before hoping over to Le Doux for dessert I would highly recommend Norman's New World Flamming Banana Split. It's one of the best desserts I've ever had with the only drawback being there wasn't enough. If that's on the menu, order it and you'd still have room for more dessert goodies elsewhere. I would classify that one under "definately not miss".
Norman's just might be the best dining experience I've had in LA. Have the tasting menu with the wine pairing if you can swing it, and ask for Heaven to be your server.
