We actually only ordered starters that were the specials of the night and desserts with a couple of flights of wine. We started with a calf-liver pate pie and crostinis, then had lamb tripe with porchini mushrooms, and finished with lamb livers over pureed peas. It was even more awesome that Chris was in his restaurant plating food and walking around the bar. I kept telling Nick to ask him to take a picture with him, but Nick refused. We're now thinking about getting his cookbook and going back to have him sign it. I will surely be doing this before we go see Alton Brown and Carla Hall in a couple weeks in Monterey.
We told a few of our friends about the restaurant and how they have "Leg of Beast" or "Whole Pig" on the menu if you pre-order. We are soooo doing that. Whole pig? Yes, please.
On with the pictures!
