Especially memorable?

4 posts in this topic

Is there a dining experience you consdier especially memorable?

If so, would you describe? (Doesn't have to be a reviewed location)

Thanks!


Apparently it's easier still to dictate the conversation and in effect, kill the conversation.

When you have to review them, they're all memorable. A few highlights, however:

The Ryland Inn, for its herb garden, complete with slightly menacing dog, and for a late-summer tomato appetizer that was off every chart.

Charrito's, in Union City, for its amazing and unexpected superrealist décor and (repeat all adjectives, including superrealist) chicken mole.

Rat's, for the Sculpture Garden.

The James Beard House in Manhattan, where the great man used to cook on a stove with electric burners (before my time, however).

And La Mère Blanc, in Vonnas, France, a Michelin 3-star where my wife and I ate on our honeymoon. Georges Blanc, who looked impossibly young, came out of the kitchen and signed our menu, wishing us une bonne lune de miel.

I drove through Vonnas this summer- It is now the town of Georges Blanc- He is everywhere and his restaurant is enormous. We did not have the opportunity to eat there but my cousin who lives in Macon has been there several times and says it is fabulous.
