Where I Go Out

At My Venues

Perfect Iceberg Salad
$$$, Modern, New American,
"Perfect Iceberg Salad Forever 👌🏼 the only salad I actually enjoy eating is iceberg lettuce with egg & bacon bits on it. Iceberg lettuce = 🐐 (also very good stir-fried!) Besides Charter Oak making incredibly delicious food. All their fruits and vegetables come from their own farm. That means @ckostow even grows his own iceberg lettuce!!! WTF!!! That’s some hall of fame shit 🙇"
Beef ribs cooked over Cabernet barrels
$$$, Modern, New American,
"@the_charteroak was so thoughtful and delicious! From "tostones" with Mendocino seaweed and brown butter, to raw vegetables from their farm served with fermented soy dip (we went back the next night and ordered two more of these), to beef ribs cooked over Cabernet barrels served with smoked chewy beets dressed in the rib drippings, to slow cooked eggplant with peanut, miso and cured egg yolk. Outstanding meals both nights. Amazing service as well!"
