Rustic Canyon with guest chef David Kinch

foodiemahoodie Nov 12, 2013 01:44 AM

Anyone else go there tonight? It was a 5 course meal - that was actually 5 course from Jeremy Fox (chef @ Rustic Canyon, who worked with Kinch at Manresa) and 5 courses from David Kinch. For $95 plus wine.

A lot of fun - and a lot of local heavy-weight culinary power showed up to eat; Michael Cimarusti, Josiah Citrin, Ludo Lefebvre, Raphael Lunetta (the latter three all at one table - I think they closed the joint). I'm sure there were others, but as I was facing the street it was hard to see.

Too tired and drunk to post the menu. Big fun though.

      Listen, you have to post this stuff in advance!

      I'm a big fan of Kinch. Tough missing out.

          How were his dishes? Did he do the famous Arpege egg or one of his signature Monterey Bay abalone dishes? Or perhaps his "into the garden" salads with like 20-30 tastes of vegetables?

            There was an abalone dish - Monterey Bay abalone with turnip - but that was a Rustic Canyon dish. It was very good. Maybe my fav of the evening.

            Closest thing to a "salad" from Mr. Kinch was mijote of sunchoke & chestnuts, brussel sprouts with brillat savarin milk.

            Lol! Thanks for looking out. Another one of my favorites. Best Scottish prawns with spring peas and morels I've had.

              Darn! Missed it.

              My simple tomato soup at Manresa many years ago was one of the best dishes I've ever had.
