Ken's Home Plate on Hawthorne

Snort | Nov 6, 200407:21 PM     9

Most memorable meal I've had in a long time. Dungeness crabcakes, chicken Saltimbocca (traditionally veal, but this version works great), tasty asparagus cooked in olive oil and garlic, and boca negra (chocolate cake with raspberry sauce). I shared this all with my wife and we were awed at how good it was. It's haute cuisine in a diner sort of ambience. I don't like dressing up to have a meal and this place suits me to a T. Fantastic food, nothing pretentious.
