    It was! It was amazing. The red and yellow stripes were strawberry and meyer lemon concoctions respectively, both very strong and sweet, and the sauce reduction it was in also had strawberry and citrus in it with little slivers of fruit. The 3 little drizzles around the outside were balsamic vinegar, and it was amazing how strong all the flavors were just barely touching a bite to them. The foie gras itself was incredibly rich but the acidic and sweet lemon and very sweet and tart strawberry paired with the fatty richness of the foie gras made it seem like eating wagyu steak and an awesome dessert in the same bite. I loved it. It was a $15 upcharge and I'd gladly do it again! The risotto looked amazing too, and I almost opted for that but I really wanted to try foie gras at a place I knew would do it right. Was not disappointed. 10/10 recommend if you're in to that kind of thing.

    It’s a beautiful night! My flight got delayed so I fly out early in the morning- spent the day with fabulous company and dropped more money than necessary at Caesar’s but it’s okay.

    lucky you're flying, I believe the 15 at Cajon Pass is in a pretty bad way right now.

    are we sure that's not Major Tom?
