Comme Ca - Los Angeles

The service was great, the food was good. We had a party of three and reservations at 5:30. After reviewing the menu and our appetites. We decided to stick with just starters and cocktails.

We ordered the Roasted Bone Marrow with Oxtail Marmalade, Steak Tartare, The Charcuterie plate and the Tarte Flambee. The bone marrow should be served with salt, as it was a bit bland. The steak tartare was fresh and I really enjoyed the capers that were mixed in, I thought it needed more seasoning. All the meats on the items on the charcuterie plate were good, the pork rillette was quite different then the one I had at AOC, but it was good. Our cocktails, were inventive and made with very fresh ingredients.

Overall, our experience was good. Our server was very well educated on the menu and attentive to our needs.

Maui - Da Kitchen

So I just got back from Maui last weekend. I was there for my friends wedding. It was an awesome trip. It was my first time there, so I did some research on the local food near where I was staying. For plate lunches, it was all about Da Kitchen.

So on the first day, I decide to go there for lunch.
