A few observations during restaurant week -- a little late (I know)

Eric Eto | Feb 10, 2003 03:38 PM

Molyvos served the best yogurt dessert I've had. I'm a big fan of the Yogurt place's strained yogurt, but this stuff at Molyvos had such a nice thick, yet smooth texture. I'll experiment with mixing the strained and regular yogurts from the Yogurt place to see if I can reach that consistency. It was served with imported greek honey and chopped pistachios. Simple and lovely.

Tocqueville has one sake on its winelist (or wine board) -- Kubota Manjyo. According to Russkar from the LA boards, this is the creme de la creme of the sake experience (see link). I seem to remember $12 a glass, but don't quote me on that. I'm not a drinker so I didn't order any, but for any sake aficionados out there, you might want to check it out. I'm not sure if it's available at Sakagura, but my inclination is that it probably is.

The merguez sandwich at Pigalle is pretty damn good. Good spicy lamb flavor and it's a good solid plate o' food for under $9 at a decent brasserie. I'm not sure if they switch up menus during the dinner hours, but it seems that it's available the rest of the day and night -- I had it at lunch. Served with good fries and a plain salad. You might want to ask for extra harissa (hot sauce) if you like it hotter.
