  1. L’Espalier’s foie gras torchon is a bit too overwhelming for me.



  1. […] And of course, how can you visit PH without ordering their Kobe Beef Sashimi… himalayan salt, mushroom chips, truffle-mayo I’m convinced that it changes lives. I was sooo excited to see R eat it.. the tender kobe sashimi… the amazing salt block… the truffle mayooooo omgomgomgomgomgomg… always perfection. ALWAYS. […]


  2. […] was purely heavenly…. time to go back to Chicago to give Rick a HUUUUUGE hug and then eat his great food […]
