Came across these pictures just now from The Greenhouse Tavern…Damn those frites!

Like reminiscing about Disneyland family trips and Clampette’s travel vacations of past…apparently I like my trips down memory lane – with food.

Devils on horseback: w/ dee-jay’s bacon wrapped dates, almonds, bitter chocolate and roasted fresno peppers –  $6.

Despite its mini size, this has been a perennial favorite of mine for quite a while. Though I acknowledge this is a common dish throughout England, the work that is put in just this little morsel of love is amazeballs.

Foie gras steamed clams: w/ butter, red onion brulee, late harvest viognier vinegar and grilled bread – $13.

Now THIS dish is just fun cause after you devour all the clams, you have those lonely pieces of crisp grilled bread that just begs to be dipped in the foie gras jus. Do me a favor and ask for more grilled bread now. Oh yeah, I won’t judge if you asked for a straw.

Animal style frities: w/ fried bacon, two fried eggs, whole grain mustard, mozzarella cheese curd and brown gravy – $11.

Apparently this is a favorite of Iron Chef Michael Symon as indicated on Food Network’s “Best Thing I Ever Ate” show. Plate hit the table and the forks were in. Didn’t even have a chance to snap a good picture. Besides-how can you go wrong with bacon, fries, eggs, mustard, cheese and gravy? Yes you have chest pains-but just take a moment…cause I know you just wet yourself.

Odds are, you’d see Chef Sawyer there. Can’t miss him. And he’d prob hug you too – he’s just like a teddy bear.

It’s the holiday season so continue dreaming of the good stuff.
