“Have you ever noticed that all of a sudden it seems that almost every restaurant you walk into is serving the same dish? Burrata salad, braised pork belly, pig’s ears in some form, short ribs—and some version of Nancy Silverton’s butterscotch budino. It’s as if all the chefs with a certain sensibility are working from the same playbook.” — L.A. Times restaurant critic, S. Irene Virbila. [LAT]
