When Ordering

Recently, when I've been going out for dinner, rather than ordering something I want to eat, I've been ordering things I know that I can't make better by myself. I look for more complicated and exotic dishes on the menu that I know I have no way in hell of cooking on my own at home. It's a new habit that's served me well.

Case in point, for my birthday, when Mutsumi asked me where I wanted to go, rather than pick a steak house as I usually do, I choose to go to Blue Ribbon for one of my favorite meals that there's no possible way I have any chance of creating in our kitchen... Oxtail Marmalade and Bone Marrow on Toast!


Trust me, if you're in New York City and looking for one of the best things you could ever possibly have to eat anywhere, go to Blue Ribbon and try this stuff! It really is to die for!!

And their raw scallops and sweetbreads are amazing as well if you're feeling even more adventurous.

I do the same thing when I eat out. If I already eat it at home or I can make it, what's the point? I tend to eat a lot more red meat when I go out, but then I almost never eat it at home.
