Iberico and super shellfish to start.
Veal Milanese with perfect tomatoes.
Comte
Summer berry pudding with an over abundance of currents and served with very good whipped cream


Are we taking drinks? Cause I'm pretty sure aged burgundy goes with everything.

Maybe some really right off the farm calva at the end.
Why not mayo?

This is tougher than it sounds. Hoping for a stay of execution so that this would be the first of a series,

Grilled squid with Meyer lemon
First of the season asparagus with vin jaune/morel sauce
Oxtails and pappardelle
Oozy Humboldt Fog
Dark chocolate tart with anise scented whipped cream

Maybe some aged Daumas Gassac red


Or a fat andouillette with Mallot mustard. and some great fries. and an icy beer.

The schnitzel is just to troll Orik right?

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

Sharing a pizza with many of my long gone friends and relatives.

 

And, some beer.

For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”

Stouffer's?

Obviously for comfort, pleasure and no thought the answer is a good amount of brown heroin.

If it has to be food then you all know what I like already.

sandwiches that are large and filling and do not contain tuna or prawns

Either a really, really good burger, or that menu I had at Arpege the first time I went, plus an order of the langoustine feuillantine with curry sauce from L'Ambroisie.


I didn't tip at Per Se either.

I've said it many times-I'd like my final meal to be whatever David Kinch wants to serve me at Manresa. 

 

 

By the way Bonner, whatever happened to your promised comments on your meal there?
