Food Porn Friday | Ink | Los Angeles

Friday, May 24, 2013


Don’t ya just hate it when your return visit to a previously LOVED eatery yields less than desired results? When the cuisine was initially sooooo bomb.com that you advertised it as such and rounded up the entire posse for a night on the town, only to be met with satisfactory service and a hastened supper? With a super packed Saturday night crowd and a kitchen bursting at the seams I felt rushed to finish my $100+ meal when all I really wanted to do was relax and enjoy the spread. Eh, at least the presentation was still right on point.

Asparagus cooked in hay, goats milk ice, smoked oil

Note to self: Keep in mind the curse of the ever omnipresent West Hollywood hotspot. Once it’s IN, get on your way OUT. Don’t believe me? Simply book your next dinner on a weekend and watch as this beauty turns into an ENTIRELY different beast.

But please don't be completely discouraged, I think 3rd time's the charm fosho! Read my first review of Ink. HERE and see why I'll DEFINITELY be back for more Michael!

TGIF my loves!!!

Hope everyone celebrates a festive and fun Memorial Day weekend!
Bon appétit mes amis!

  1. Yes, I HATE that. There have been times when I went to a restaurant and had such a positive experience, but the next time I go, the staff is rude or the food isn't as good...it is such a letdown! I'm sorry that happened to you.
