SPAGO=The Best TM LUNCH in LA
Yesterday 4 of us decended on Spago for Lunch (11:45a).
I had PRE- ordered the TM so the kitchen had time to prepare in advance.
Salmon Tartar Cone
Foie Gras Mousse
Mini Salmon Pizza
Seared Foie Gras w/fig
Angelotti Pasta w/ ALBA White Truffles
3 Cheese Platter
Mini Apple Cobbler w/ ice cream
125-ea, time 4+ hrs
wines: Gavi de Gavi (S), 64 Clos V (Gros), 96 CLR (burg), 88 Griottes C (chezeau), 88 Sauturne , 70 Latour
Service was perfect along with the food!
You apparently did not attend lunch with us yesterday. If you had the only cardboard you would be referring to would be the box holding our empty wine bottles. Everyone in attendance yesterday is either a serious foodie or a wine collector who has dined at Spago several times and the verdict was unanimous, EXCELLENT!!
While I don't necessarily disagree about Spago's tasting menu at lunch being the "best," I really don't think there's real competition.
After all, how many restaurants actually have a tasting menu for lunch?
On that note, anyone know if Cimarusti is planning a tasting menu for lunch at Providence?
