Did Wood & Vine last night in Hollywood. Near Hollywood & Vine (naturally). Was absolutely fantastic. Very simple menu. Some lovely cocktails, beers and wines. A fine selection of charcuterie and cheeses and a 8 or 9 small plates perfect for splitting with a group. Highlights...
The Potted Foie Gras - some of the most wonderfully rich and surprisingly complex foie gras I've ever tasted; no lectures, please.
Heirloom Tomato Salad - farm fresh ingredients, nicely balanced.
Fried Chicken and Waffles with maple glazed squash and sage butter - as good as it sounds.
Grilled Scallops - served with truffled grits - wow!
I'm sure their desserts are great too, but we were too stuffed to even attempt it.
