As we were driving home from Vela, I turned to R and sighed that it had been a weekend of disappointing dining. R offered to make a reservation for Tuesday (my actual B-day) and promised me that “I wouldn’t be disappointed,” That’s a brave undertaking.
Luckily, R knows better than to go out on a limb and try somewhere new. He took me out to Grill 23, which is my favorite restaurant in
The blue cheese mashed was fabulous, the blue cheese added a nice flavor, but wasn’t too strong. The mushrooms were good, but very standard.
For dessert we had chocolate-filled crepes with cherries and pistachios and a mascarpone cheesecake. The cheesecake was okay, the mascarpone added a tang I wasn’t that fond of. The crepes were delicious.
Service at Grill 23 is always outstanding. It was a good choice for a non-disappointing dinner. Good job, R.
