Last Sunday night was the best dinner of the week - R&D on Montana where we waited outside in the RAIN (two drops). Great Sunday night ambiance - upbeat, nice service and not too loud - I had the wild mushroom meat loaf with spinach and mashed potatoes - just truly delicious.
Best lunch was yesterday at La Frite in Woodland Hills.
I yearn for Frenchy little places from the time I lived in France when you could not get a bad meal and the Euro had not come into being yet.
La Frite is just a charming place with a patio, an interior seating area looking out to the patioi and then an interior kind of pub seating area. We sat overlooking the patio and stayed for most of the afternoon where people were coming and going - the restaurant does not close.
Mme Zoe who has a life long love affair with Salad Nicoise pronounced the huge bowl to the the real thing except for the vineagrette which was not up to HER vinaegrett (wish I could spell this). I had a taste of Shrimp Bisque (did not order it) and then a stunning pate plate with cornishons, salad, thin slices of bread and three huge portions of pate de campaign, duck pate and a silky chicken liver mousse. We shared a home made strawberry rhubarb crisp with a scoop of vanilla icecream - what a great lunch - really exceptional
