My friend Caroline and I went this restaurant Joe’s on Abbot Kinney today for lunch. Three course lunch for $18 and house picks for wine (a Spanish white that tasted like Sauvignon Blanc and a Merlot) for $7 a glass. I love prix fixe. My eyes are bigger than my stomach so I love know that I always have more food coming.
Here’s what I had:
Ahi Tuna Tartare placed in a neat little ball over a piece of lox and garnished with cucumbers and diced tomatoes and lemon. It came with a few toasts to eat the tuna although I could eat tuna tartare straight.
Chicken Breast with sugar snap pea puree, white corn, and haricot verts. And it had these great mushrooms–they looked like oyster mushrooms but they were darker.
A peach doughnut (a piece of fried dough with a yummy peach inside) with a scoop of ice cream.
And later… A nap.
