C, my friend from college, was in town to visit. We went to Ford's Filling Station in Culver City... The food was really nice, though I wish they had been a little lighter on the butter (or as Fabio would say Butt-A). Oh btw, apparently it's owned by Harrison Ford's son so I am calling it Young Indiana Jones. I once ran into Harrison and Calista Flockart at a sushi restaurant... they looked the same in person as on tv and in movies. Very nice couple!
C got sauteed scallops and I got lamb loin and we shared a side order of sauteed kale...and finished off the meal with creme broule and penne cotta. I think there is an accent mark above one of the Es on creme broule, ahh too lazy to go to symbols :P
It says a lot about the relative quality of the two restaurants that you weren't able to get a seat at Fraiche but could get into Ford's Filling... -J Fraiche is clearly winning the battle.
Overall though, it was still very good...the service was nice and friendly, really the only problem I thought was the excess butter --the desert was really good too, not heavy at all!
btw, we're definitely going here the next time I'm in LA. http://www.wolfgangssteakhouse.com
Went to the Manhattan branch for Zack's bachelor party and loved it!
I am a real ford's fan. i went in once with some freinds and we ordered everything we could want and shared each bite...you are so lucky. i wish i lived in LA. You are one lucky lawyer!
Hi table, oh thanks! I'll go there again just for you! Haha! I am sure your home town is a fun place too!
