Since many of the LA hounds have visited Josie seemingly numerous times, I so humbly ask you to help me choose off their take-out menu.. With all the seats in LA restaurants filling up quickly on New Year's Eve, I figured I'd have a Josie-fest in the comfort of my own home (not to mention the countless bottles of vino that can be consumed when you don't have to drive!) Unfortunately, the four main dishes are all meat and my husband is a fishetarian, so I think I will go with 2 appetizers and one salad.
For salad- I am leaning toward the Baked Pear and Endive with Watercress. The other choices are Harvest Roast Vegetables, Frisee and Gorgonzola with Grapes, and Farmer's Market Greens.
I'm having trouble choosing two appetizers- they all sound great. I'll leave out the meat apps but please give opinions on which two you think are the best:
Creamy Mushrooms on Puff Pastry
Roast Tomatoes with Mozzarella
Tuna Tartare & Calico Coleslaw
Smoked Salmon Croque-Monsieur
Spicy Glazed Shrimp
Crab Cakes with Spicy Remoulade
Other options include:
Jill's Sweet Corn Torte
French Puy Lentils
Puree of Sweet Potato
Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes
I'm trying to go for something that will give me a glimpse of the Josie experience in my own home. If any of you are feeling especially fiesty, please feel free to make wine recommendations based on the food of your choice.
