The interaction with the chefs was one of my favorite parts. As Jules said, we were very clearly the "foodies" in that particular seating and I think the chefs actually enjoyed conversation with people who had some appreciation and understanding of what was going on.

Early on, "Question Man" saw one of the chefs working with a transfer pipet and and asked what it was. They told him and I said something like, "I wonder what Escoffier would've done with those." One of the chefs joked "Probably forcemeat." I looked at Jules and she laughed, "Yes, you did just drop an Escoffier reference." I think we were "in" with the chefs after that. :lol:

I'm sure there's good food to be had almost everywhere these days. If I'm traveling a good distance from home, I'd like the destination to be one I actually want to visit regardless of its food. Kansas City just isn't on my radar. I may never eat at any of the fine Las Vegas restaurants for much the same reason. It's also largely why I haven't checked out anything in NYC yet.

Jules and I discussed this when I said I got a rejection e-mail from el Bulli earlier this year. While the thought of eating at el Bulli is cool, neither of us had much of a desire to visit Spain outside of that. Had I gotten a reservation, it would've been a very tough decision.

PF, those photos are absolutely tantalizing, and your descriptions are always so well written that it makes me wonder if you have a sideline being a professional food writer. You really do have a way of taking the reader on a wonderfully vicarious gastronomic adventure.

Your and Jule's trip to minibar reminds me that I've been to Saam at The Bazaar (in Los Angeles), which is another José Andres restaurant within a restaurant. It was quite an experience, though taken down a few notches by some less than enthusiastic dinner mates. I'll have to sneak back sometime.

And for the record, I love these threads. The only reason I rarely post on them is because I'm usually too bedazzled to reply. :)

You know, my dinner the other week was the first "major dining experience" (for lack of a better term?) I've ever had dampened by someone who didn't want to be there (and let us all know, in the manner of a petulant 15 year old, unfortunately), and not because of the company but because of the atmosphere and the food.

Sure, I've dined with people who aren't as "foodie" as I am, but usually they can still appreciate the experience, and are usually interested in learning or hearing more about what's going on. It was pretty disappointing to spend quite a lot and have someone put such a negative spin on it, and I was surprised at how much it affected the whole night.

Companions can make all the difference. I've had meals in the same restaurant with different sets of people and the difference couldn't have been more night-and-day.

Dining with non-foodies ... or at least "less-foodies" ... can be a gamble on all sides of the table and yeah, it really DOES reflect on the entire evening. Back when I was in a corporate environment, I had two non-foodie work friends who knew that 1 night during each business trip would be us three going someplace where food mattered. I appreciated how open they both were to the various places we visited and I know that they appreciated going somewhere that wouldn't have been on their radar. ("Tru" for instance, became "that place with the incredible asparagus soup". :lol: But hey - at least they liked it!)
I've also dined with folks who presented themselves as food-knowing types, only to realize that our definitions varied greatly ('tho none of them asked what was in a dish named "zucchini, zucchini, zucchini").
Luna - sorry your experience was dampened by the wet blanket. I'd so much rather someone tell me they couldn't go, even at the last minute, than to wreck the evening for everyone else.

As for places to eat, as PF said there are shining stars pretty much everywhere ... we all probably have a foodie-mecca bucket list. (Plus if I get on a plane this year that DOESN'T go to SFO, my folks are gonna start to wonder if PF exists.)
I'm impressed ... and happy. Not "surprised" ... but happy.

Amazing meal, PF. The quail egg in the parmesan shell made me drool just a little.

I'm not a molecular gastronomy/food as high art fan in general. My tastes simply run in an almost entirely different direction. But the way you shoot those pictures would touch any food aficionados soul.

I'm willing to bet that, with your talent and photographic equipment, you could make a meal at Denny's look appetizing. ;)

Those pics are great, I will have to try mini bar next time I am in D.C.. Lat time I was there we tried Oyamel and it was just delicious. My husband was scared becuase he had never had good mexican food before but by the end of theeal he was changed. I had started with tamal verde it was a chiccken tamal with verde sauce. Then I had a couple of tacos, one was a shredded beef taco and the other was a bqq pork and they was very good and I also had pollo mole poblano it was a chicken smothered in mole sauce and it was wonderful. I forgot what my husband had expect he had a few of the same tacos I did and enjoyed them. We had drinks and shared a tres leche cake. There was something interesting on the menu I didn't try they had grasshopper tacos, I am wondering if anyone has tried them or not? I ask because I am curious and I am not sure I could eat grasshoppers lol. The experience there was just amazing and I hope to go back again soon.

Count me in as another who loves these type of threads. Since work keeps me on the road, almost all of my meals are eaten away from home and since I'm one of our single members, 95% of those meals are eaten solo. While eating out solo doesn't bother me, I have found from experience that "destination" dining is not the most enjoyable experience because it isn't shared. I've had some fabulous destination dining experiences when with others though and really enjoy reading about and seeing pictures from others experiences.

That was a VERY enjoyable segment! I actually laughed out loud in amusement when he popped open the mojito, uh...globule. :) Pretty innovative stuff going on, there. And heartwarming that he volunteers at the soup kitchen, too. What an interesting man. I am envious of the Silver Fox, that he got to spend so much time with him.

Man...between this and the Conan segment, this is the first time I've been interested to watch 60 Minutes in many years.

Very nice segment! It definitely caught Andres' exuberance.
Apparently Anderson Cooper is very much NOT a foodie, so they found his reactions upon being served some of their creations quite interesting.

Aw, I wouldn't be too hard on Anderson. Growing up as a son of Gloria Vanderbilt, he probably has a more refined palate than most of us. I don't think being new to molecular gastronomy is grounds for turning in your foodie card
