Answering some questions:

 

1.Most memorable overall experience?

–Melisse.  Service personal and not overbearing.  Every dish was thought out, had a focus and direction and was not only beautiful, but delicious.

2.Most memorable dish?

–Tasting menu at Hatfield’s.  Potato Soup over Butternut Squash Custard with Crispy Sweetbreads.  The only thing I’ve ever eaten, where i was dying to have more.

3.Most impressive service?

–Studio at Laguna Beach.  Every guest in the restaurant was called to by name, not just me and not only by the host, but the bartender, the server, the management.  Very Impressive.

4.Most memorable interior?

–Cleo. I love the versatility of feeling in a “dress up” environment without feeling “stuffy”.
