Last night I went to BLT on Sunset. I wasn’t in the mood for steak so I thought it would be safe to order the Dover Sole sauteed in butter sauce. Ahhh, no.
Ok, stop. I know I was “the asshole who ordered fish at steakhouse” so I deserve it.
But, in comparison to the halibut the boys prepared the night before, it was mediocre at best. Alex found the recipe for Lemon Herb Crusted Halibut on FoodNetwork.com. The whole process seemed so easy AND TASTED DELICIOUS. (More than delightful, it was spectacular.) Obviously he’s a pro in the kitchen, so it “seemed” manageable. I’m sure I would have ended up throwing the pan against the wall in frustration from burning the tomatos which didn’t need cooking.
I tell you this because if you’re looking for a tasty meal, check out FoodNetwork.com before you leave the office, hit up the grocery store on the way home, and spend the time you would be waiting for a dry fillet, sipping wine and sauteing.
(Note: The good spots in NYC are migrating west. Turns out they prefer the sun as well, but can’t figure out how to prepare the food while they lay by the pool. Stay away from Craft as well.)
