First up is a wildflower honey poached forelle pear salad with lavender and fennel-scented Sonoma goat cheese, fresh fig, spiced walnuts, and quince vinaigrette.

For the main course — which will require 1,500 lbs. of beef — a filet of beef tenderloin with herb-scented potato terrine, king trumpet mushrooms, yucca chips, roasted cherry tomatoes, red wine jus and béarnaise espuma will be served.

Rendering Barrel for Barrel & Ashes BBQ Joint

Experienced a very disappointing lunch from new-ish Studio City resto called Barrel & Ashes. Menu created by "celebrity chefs", Tim Hollingsworth and Rory Hermann. Greasy pools of liquid fat, micro meat, poorly seasoned BBQ/smoked pork ribs. My cloth napkin was soaked in oil from squeezing the oozing gristled bones. My guest politely asked for the brisket sandwich with no melted cheese. Of course, plate comes w melted cheese, then takes 10 more minutes to remake. Baked beans taste from canned Heinz 57 (tomatoe-y British version) w a splash of vinegar and cold square of pig back fat (no-meat-attached back fat). Soo-Wee and Gross a go-go! A tinned can of U.S. Bushes Baked Beans is 300% better. What are these guys thinking about?? Glad we didn't order more. Nice server, LOUD country tunes, no manager on site, no chefs, only cooks slinging & prepping for din-din. IPA beer was best part (only Telegraph $9 on Tap ). My advice is to stay away from this insipid mess of porcine disrespect. Oink-Oink from Hollywood.

Chic, Au Courant Dinner at Joel Robuchon Las Vegas

I just returned from experiencing the most ultimate, spectacular, in vogue dining experience at Joel Robuchon Restaurant, MGM Hotel Las Vegas.  Menu says it all.  Chef Robuchon was there in person supervising.  I was honored that JR asked my critique of each course.   Each dish brilliantly executed by first-class Chef Claude LeTohic and his team.  Wine pairing created by William Moss, sommelier/director of wine.  Fine dining, at it's absolute best.  Sheer Perfection.
