Spago:

Overall terrific. We don’t do tasting menus and were apprehensive about this place because I could never find anyone who had ordered a la carte.

My first course of tomato mozzarella salad was good but not as good as Vanentino’s. (will get to that later.) Hubby’s first course was sashimi and some other kind of tuna and he raved about it. My entrée was the turbot and it literally melted in my mouth. It was served on top of fresh fava beans, baby artichokes and some other veggies I forgot. I would definitely order that again.

Hubby for some strange reason wanted the wiener snitzle, which was listed as one of the chef’s favorite childhood recipes. I don’t remember what it was supposed to come with, but he asked the waiter if he could have the spaeztle instead. Sure, no problem…it came, was delicious, but we were surprised to see it listed on the bill at $52.00. Didn’t realize substitutions were so expensive, but what the hey.

Banana cream pie was really good; my unpronounceable strawberry something was nice, but I wouldn’t order it again. It was basically just strawberries over a mild tasting soufflé.
