Last week we learned that Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger were taking us back to the eighties in their plutonium-powered DeLorean. Today the chefs reveal the highlights that will land on the menu Wednesday, February 29th** at Downtown’s Border Grill. As suspected it’s a global grab-bag of dishes, starting with a salad of Chinese sausage, centering on sauteed halibut cheeks and red curry with duck, and ending with three desserts, like a dark chocolate pate with rum soaked raisins and espresso crème anglaise. See the full menu for this $75 four-course pre-fixe down below and make reservations at 213-486-5171 to land back in the Too Hot Tamale era.
