Anyone else think stinking rose is overrated? [moved from L.A. board]
been stoked for months, but...
...90 bucks for 2 people.
the swiss chard fondue was AMAZING.
the bagna calada was decent but there was too much anchovie.
the rabbit was pretty good, overcooked tho.
garlic mash was great.
no drinks, just soda, 3 bones.
for that price thought, coulda had a wayyy more amazing meal.
overall mood: kinda bummed
My beef with the place is, apart from being touristy and overpriced, that it's just "let's see how much garlic we can dump in a dish." No attempt at balance or taste overall. There are other flavors in the world besides garlic...flavors that both enhance and are elevated by the presence of some garlic.
