Alright everyone, I had a true culinary experience on Friday night and I am so excited to tell you about it.
My boyfriend and I went to a wedding in Los Angeles and decided to celebrate our Valentine’s Day together while we were there. He made reservations at a restaurant called Ink in West Hollywood.
The whole vibe was very classic, but also very chill. We didn’t have just one waiter – it was a very shared experience from the entire staff. Different, cool, and edgy – I was into it. The idea of the menu is that it changes frequently to add seasonal dishes and specialty favorites. You generally order 2 starters, 2 mains, and 2-3 sides for 2 people and share. Oh an their specialty? Steak. I was in heaven.
We ordered their oysters with a mignonette to start. But here’s the catch – the mignonette was flash frozen and melted in your mouth with the oyster. It was incredible – and very unexpected. Our second starter was the street corn – it was sweet, savory, and delicious. And my personal favorite? The egg yolk gnocchi.
Sitting in a French onion broth, these “gnocchi” are light, fluffy, and creamy on the inside. YUM!
For mains we had a pork with plantains and a filet minion that melted in your mouth. Cooked to perfection!
It was a great night of wining and dining, and I recommend this place if you’re ever in the area. For now, I’ll just dream about that gnocchi…
