Call us crazy, but when celebrating a wonderful event, my wife and I like nothing more than a great dish of mashed potatoes. Searching for a suitable restaurant a few nights ago, we began to wonder who might have the best mashed potatoes in LA.
So jonesing for vinyl booths and old-fashioned service were we, we drove into the valley for Monty's Steakhouse. Their mashed potatoes were, if standard, completely satisfying...fluffy and smooth.
But we're always on the lookout for new and better ideas!
(Bonus: anyone who can recommend a place to find mashed potatoes squirted from a pastry tube on the edge of a plate, and then top-browned in an oven, a la Scandia, will receive our enternal gratitude...)
