We thought we’d check back in with Ruth Reichl following on her Grub Street Diet of a couple weeks back, since she’s on an extended stay in her one-time home of Los Angeles. Last week she blogged about Michael Cimarusti’s ironically named composed salad at Providence, “The Ugly Stuff,” which she says is “the most beautiful dish in L.A.” She then twittered about a lunch at Spago on Monday which she called “a delirious dream,” calling out the chestnut agnolotti with truffles and adding, “I may never eat again.” Also, she makes note that every server in L.A. says, “Awesome, guys,” after taking your order.
