Classic old dishes I remember

jonesstonehaven | Nov 2, 201308:45 AM     180

This is inspired by
a) The "carpetbag" and "remember these restaurants" threads
b) The LA magazine food issue out now
c) Julia Child's quote on nouvelle cuisine but could also apply to fusion dishes "It is so beautifully arranged on a plate - you know someone's fingers have been all over it ".

I love the diversity of LA cuisine but sometimes I have a craving for the old classics. Here are just a few I remember - what are yours ?

Tableside dining apart from Caesar Salad and Guacamole such as Bananas Foster, Cherries Jubilee, Crepes Suzette, Steak Diane and Au Poive
Dover Sole fileted tableside
Veal Oscar
Anything in papiotte or savory in puff pasty shells
Chateaubriand
Sole Veronique and Almondine
Duck Montmorency
Strawberries Romanoff
Coquille St Jacques
and last but not least for breakfast - simple half grapefuit broiled for a second with brown sugar, REAL homeade corned beef hash extra crispy and quiches.
