what does "reductionist" refer to?


my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)

 

current whisky review: glen ord 28

 

current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

ori’s term for old schoolish French cooking with reduction sauces.

I think you need to interpret what I'm saying in a reasonable way.

What happened at the 12th?

 

I hope if you choose Nora Gray, Adrian, you have a better experience than we.

I've written up Candide earlier in this thread. Overall pretty good, some weird choices, but there is some pretty decent talent in the kitchen. Portions are pretty small, but if you get an earlier reservation, you can easily pop into lvp for a plate or two. I haven't been to Hoogan and Beaufort in ages. Since I last went, they've lost their pastry chef and their Somm. Menu seems to still read well though.

I haven't been, but no reason to believe that Monarque won't be good. Same people as behind Lemeac.
