Left Bank

Back at Left Bank for dinner — I’m pumped! Chef Laurence Edelman is known for using fresh, seasonal ingredients in his cooking and is always coming up with fun and creative dishes. It’s been a few months since my last meal here and I’m excited to see what new dishes on are on the menu. SaraDish and I sat at the bar and shared a bottle of Pigato (a crisp Italian white wine) recommended by the bartender — it was the perfect choice for a hot summer night. Our meal consisted of five delightful plates: beefsteak tomatoes with spring onions & basil, steak tartare crostini, shaved zucchini & gravlax salad with fresh ricotta, swiss chard pie with fried egg, and pappardelle with zucchini, squash & pecorino. I absolutely loved every single dish! It was literally a combination of my most favorite things to eat in the world. I have to give a special shout out to the swiss chard pie (I love savory pies and I’ve never had a pie like this before!) and the pappardelle (unbelievably delicious… I’m coming back for more very soon). We had the maple syrup pie with creme fraiche for dessert — a great end to a sensational meal. :)
