The idea of eating healthy or diet food are usually synonymous with cardboard, flavorless, and just friggen gross. But not today folks, Patina in downtown Los Angeles’ Executive Chef Charlies Olalia has announced a Paleo prix fixe menu and with no particular end in sight. As we posted last week, fine dining and diet trends have collided at Patina with this seasonal/rotating menu and at a great value! Here’s a closer look:
1st course: Salad of Summer’s Bounty – organically grown, chicken chicharonnes, avocado vinaigrette
2nd course: Beef Tongue A La Plancha – watercress, carrot ribbons, salsa verde
3rd course: Maple Leaf Farms Duck – golden chantrelle, bacon lardon, salmis jus
4th course: Coconut Bavarois – sesame croquant, alpine chocolate, flourless chocolate cake, cocoa paper
a little something extra: Sweetbreads, asparagus ribbons, morel mushrooms.
