SIV at District, Win Free Dinner at BLD, Ortolan Debuts New Spring Menu

New, 2 comments

HOLLYWOOD— SIV drops by District for the early word: "Kris Morningstar [has] come up with a menu of quirky, often delightful dishes...The menu is short and sweet...To start, try the beef deckle...it's curiously delicious paired with a piquant cucumber salad. Cheese rice agnolotti could be a starchy disaster. Instead, they're dreamy packets of supple pasta dough stuffed with pureed rice and sauced with porcini and hazelnuts. But the killer app is shrimp and grits flavored with garlic and Aleppo pepper for a kick of heat. Sea urchin gratin, however, falls flat." [LAT]

MID-CITYBLD introduces Thursday night Plat du Jour. Tweet your idea for a dish to chef Diana Stavaridis (@BLDChefD) and if Diana uses your idea, you and a friend eat for free. Entries due Thursday by midnight for next Thursday’s Tweet-a-Dish Plat du Jour debut on April 22. [EaterWire]
