    I was surprised at the new elf-sized portions as well last time I ate there (had the beet gnocchi) but it was so filling that I didn’t feel like I needed more quantity once I started eating. We tried the sushi and a lettuce wrap also and those portion sizes were very generous so maybe it’s only a few of the more dense dishes?

    The somewhat awkwardly named “Matthew’s Pudding” was delicious (if you haven’t tried that yet).

    Yum! The crepe is gorgeous and I always love looking at raw desserts.

    If I ever get the chance to visit this place, my stomach’s comfort level will have no say in hwo much food I order and eat. Oh, the heavenliness! I adore lavender in sweet things, and I adore the picky liguist in you.

    Oh, that Cherry Bomb! I’ve been obsessing over photos of it around the net!

    Good call on the Bianco-Bianca – lol!

    That ravioli looks so good to me right now.

    So glad that you have had a ‘healthy’ response to your recipe tasters requests – not that it surprises me, though! 😉 Best of luck as you proceed with the project!

    Oh I somehow missed this call for volunteers. Though considering my cranky middle aged outlook on raw food naming conventions I’m not sure you’d have wanted me.

    As for elf sized proportions on raw food at restaurants. This just nuts to me. We’ll not be converting anyone to raw food if they don’t feel like they’re getting their money’s worth. for ten bucks a shot, especially considering that it’s raw, the plates should be brimming. Noveau Cuisine may work in dab sized portions on Iron Chef and for the super rich, but in real life it’s just inflated culinary egos inflating thir wallets especially considering these hard financial times.

    Get offa my Lawn and bring me one of those there mimosa!

    It really matters to me that people get the names right, so yay for picky linguists, we need them!

    I’m so intrigued to know _why_ you’re doing all this traveling–was it to promote your book? You are definitely hitting some awesome places.
    love

    Dining out with my wife at Matthew Kenney OKC nee 105degrees I found myself thinking about Indian food and sushi. Not that the cuisines are terribly similarthey arentbut they both require newcomers to change the way they think about food..Maybe my biggest problem with it is that in using familiar restaurant terms to describe their dishes they create an expectation that wont be met.
