Above is how I started my journey. The beautiful Pacific Ocean in Santa Monica.
While we gear up for a multitude of tastings and posts, I figured I’d give you a little visual stimulation of just what I’ve been eating:
FOUR SEASONS, Beverly Hills (Culina Restaurant)
1. Tricolore salad w steak
2. Salmon salad
3. Rigatoni w fennel sausage

What sets them apart? Warming the requested honey for coffee without having to ask. Well done Four Seasons BH.

1. Homemade ricotta w fig.
2. Amberjack Crudo
3. Shishito Peppers
