Re: “Larb Thai Food & Tapas

went a few weeks ago In Feb.2107...3 of agreed....except for the papaya salad & the grilled pork intestine which was decent all the other dishes were too sweet & or other wise unappealing. Made me a bit wary of Tsai's taste references. Bangkok boat noodles with well done pork liver which as you imagine was texturally offal! The pork hock entree had very little overcooked stringy meat. sorry but Won't return..sweet family though good luck to them

Re: “Cal-Italian without Pretense

While I agree with a lot of the positives about Benchmark especially the Strozzapreti dish, I beg to differ about the Caesar Salad...a large but mediocre salad compared to many I've had in the Bay area notably Zuni and without croutons! for $14?... when I got it I asked our server why no croutons..he said we just don't..given that they have terrific bread that I understand they bake there it was a real conceptual mistake.. (to their credit I asked for bread which was served)...they really need to rethink that
