Well about 2 months ago I went to Cleveland for the Fabulous Food Show! It was such an amazing experience and I will be going back in the spring! I wrote about it here, here and here. I also mentioned it in this post not meant to offend anyone here.
I promised a post about eating at Lolita, (Iron Chef) Michael Symon’s restaurant. So here it is!
Roasted bone marrow with garlic toasts. This was the dish we heard we must get. I had never had bone marrow, but I like trying new things! In the bites I got it was either too salty, too acidic or just to oily for my liking. I have not given up on bone marrow but I did not enjoy this.
This was a wood fire mushroom pizza. The crust was amazing, I love bubbles! They cooked it in huge ovens and the kitchen was in the middle of the small (50 person) restaurant so you could see and feel the heat. I respected the chefs very much because I know one day I may be in the same position. I am still young but next year I’m going to really start thinking about my life!
Seared sea scallops over pear-parsnip purée. It also had some almonds and a thick glaze like sauce. I could tell there was peppery parsnip but also a sweetness, so I asked. The waiter was very nice and knowledgeable and told me it was parsnip+pear. My only complaint was the scarcity of the purée. I would never had thought about pairing those two but Michael Symon is a genius! We got Lizzie's roasted chicken with salsa verde over chickpea purée but I have no picture.
So there you go! I’m sorry the picture quality is bad but the lighting was dim as always in most nice places! I’m sorry I took so long on it but I hope you liked it! I am going to LA in less than two weeks I need to get some reservations! Any LA eating recommendations!?
