I figured I should enjoy a taste of foie gras before California decides to ban it again. Kat went with Ravioli con Formaggio di Capra - goat cheese ravioli with tomato fonduta, Bloomsdale spinach and eggplant agrodulce.
What I wasn't expecting was another item from the starters, soups and salads menu, fried cauliflower & lemon vinaigrette. I smiled politely when they served it as I'm not a big fan of cauliflower. This, however, was sublime. The vinaigrette was one of the best I have ever tasted and it was tossed with toasted cashews and currants.
If your Italian is a bit rusty, it's the local catch of the day, in this case Ahi, served with Napa grape infusion and black olives. There was also a bright citrus presence. It was yet another stunning dish.
