Craft is solid. You know it's so when we take my mother there for Mother's Day.
I met PDX and A.J. for dinner at Craft during a dineLA week. We waited and waited and waited for insomniac. She never showed up. She was at the movies because she forgot about our dinner!
Bar None -- muddled plum, ginger beer, mint ($7).
For $44, we got all the items below served family-style, except for the entrees and desserts, which we each selected for ourselves...and then shared anyway, of course!
Braised octopus, mint vinaigrette.
Chicory salad, Asian pear, balsamic.
Wild skate wing, Anson Mills grits, walnut.
This is how fish should be done. Beautifully crisp outside. Flaky yet succulent inside.
Roasted Colorado leg of lamb, cranberry bean, Tuscan kale.
Huge and meaty! Greedy! Greedy! This cut was so gorgeous.
Braised beef cheek, Yukon Gold potato puree, orange.
Melt-in-your-mouth luscious and rich.
Italian butternut squash puree.
Chocolate panna cotta, hazelnut crumble.
Spiced pear shortcake, cajeta ice cream, candied pecans.
Going to Craft during dineLA is great. You get stuff like bonus caramel corn and s'mores at the end of your meal. Everything is delicious, and it is quite the deal.
You really missed out, insomniac.
