I have been wanting to eat at INK in Los Angeles for a long time. I cheered and cried when Michael Voltaggio won Top Chef® and then again when Mei Lin won. God, I love that show and I try to go to as many restaurants run by former contestants as I can. So, it was so exciting to be able to eat there last week!
I got dressed up with a Kate Spade dress, Hobo clutch and some bangles by Alexis Bittar and Kate Spade.
I was so excited to go inside!
We started off with some cocktails:
The plates were all mean to be shared and we got 6 of them!
First up, scallops with soy-cured papaya, fermented chili, basil
Dungeness crab with carolina gold rice, uni butter, sea beans
Corn, housemade ranch “foritos,” nori, green onion
Hamachi, portabello escabèche, hazelnuts, kelp
Black cod, charred avocado, tomato-curry broth
To end it off, the branzino with roasted cauliflower, caper, fermented grape
I loved this meal! This was so much food that I, of all people, didn’t have room for dessert!! Brava, good people at INK – I can’t wait to come back again!!!
