Spargelkarte in LA? (Asparagus menu)

farmertomato | May 8, 2013 09:36 AM

At this time of year, restaurants all over Germany hang out a banner announcing their Spargelkarte--the asparagus menu. The arrival of white asparagus is a big deal, and the menu includes mouth-watering white asparagus soup, asparagus salad, an asparagus entree, with potatoes and hollandaise and an optional meat, and sometimes an asparagus dessert (never made that leap myself.)

I know that in the past, Rockenwagner did a spargelkarte, but I haven't seen any signs of such this year. Does anyone here know of a reasonable facsimile in the LA area--a trip to Germany in not in the cards for me and I'm seriously jonesing for my spargelfixe.
