I know I’m visiting Tar and Roses way late in the game. It’s all the way in Santa Monica and a pain to go there for dinner.
But I finally made it work. And it was worth it.
Sorry, it’s early in the morning and I just missed my flight to Seattle and I’m less than enthused.
Grace Slick and I ordered pretty much everything I had my heart set on, all small plates.
Our mutual favorite were the Balsamic Glazed Ribs (served without the bone, super tender yet not fatty/gristly meat) and the Strawberry Ricotto Crostada (baked fresh strawberries atop a layer of ricotta yogurt on a light, sugary tart.
Something else I really enjoyed was the Beef Pho-paccio, sliced medallions of raw beef topped with all the familiar pho-fixins. Really unique and tasty.
