La Flor beyond Breakfast

It is good to see such good response to the breakfast at La Flor in Woodside. Although I've not had breakfast there, I have had lunch and dinner, both of which have been excellent. I posted about my discovery of La Flor a while back and was impressed then with the quality of the cooking. Pico, the chef (only there at night), knows food and has changed his menu not long ago; the food is even better now. He makes creative dishes (continental and not necessarily Mexican, although he has his share of staple Mexican dishes) and goes out of his way to get fresh ingredients, often at the Union Square Market. Last Saturday night, my wife and I had crab cakes which were terrific. He has soups usually (often vegetable and lentil),fresh salmon, chicken and shrimp dishes and a good steak for the meat eaters. You can bring your own wine or beer. the clientel is an intriguing mix of locals from Woodside and Sunnyside, Well worth a try if you are in the neighborhood.
