  1. Greg - that has to be the best value tasting menu I have ever read, and knowing Laurent's cooking, I am sure it was fabulous.
    Do I long for that tasting, with wines of course!!!

    1. The meal I had there in Novenber was memorable. Best tasting menu in LA IMO

      1. I'm assuming you provided your own wines?

        I'm curious -- was the '98 Chapoutier too young still?

          BK does not have a B&W license at its current location. This will change soon.

          Re: the Mordoree...drinks pretty well with a serious decant. I'll pop another one in 5 yrs.
