SLW May 16th

Silverlake Wine Tasting - May 16th!!!

Following what Howard Stern called "The Party of the Decade" Matt featured several menu items from that event for the Tasting on Sunday and, man, were they ever goooood!

It all started with the Fried Squash Blossums topped with Cornichon Sauce. Yes, these little bouquets were fried but oh so delicately in tempura batter and as if that weren't flavorful enough, they hosted a surprising burst of creamy ricotta and just a bit of crab that was so fresh that you, like me, might envision a mermaid shucking claws for you all morning in her sea kitchen. It was other worldly I kid you not.

Next came-- stand back-- Waffles sauteed in Brown Butter and Sage under Spicy Fried Chicken, Blueberry Maple Syrup and Creme Fraiche. Move over Roco's, these are bite size, tangy, sweet and spicy, and you got nothing on 'em.

And then of course there must be a pasta course so Matt fired up some Cavatelli and threw in Sausage & Pork Belly, English Peas, Snow Pea Tendrils, Crushed Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes and Buratta Cheese. Get out!!!

For the final course, Matt served his Bite Size Shepherd's Pie made from Slow Braised Beef Brisket, Sweet Potatoes, and Toasted Cinnamon Marshmallows. Hey now! Trust me when I say it was all pretty spectacular. I have witnesses.
