Bar Ferdinand on Rue La La
i purchased one of these when they ran this deal a few months ago for bar ferdinand - haven't used it yet so i guess you could say i'm sort of in on the deal. esp with ansill in the kitchen i think its a pretty solid deal. like barryg, i've bought the lacroix gift cards and they're still going strong so i dont think BF being on Rue La La is a red flag at all.
I am really worried that this is on Rue La La.. LBF was on Rue La La before its final demise under Georges Perrier.. it lead to the place being packed and it was the WORST meal I had in 2011. I really do not think these help a restaurant in the long run.
That said, I really want to try the tasting menu under David Ansil's deft hand.. I hope the Rue La La excludes thursdays.
