Rarely do I visit a place twice in one month, but we had a lunch meeting today in Silver Lake, so we dealt with the craziness that is Forage once again
As I was waiting in line, I decided on what I wanted…
…but when I arrived at the glass case, there were a few discrepancies!
No quiche, no roasted veggies, but there WAS this beautiful plate of lentils and barley…
…and golden beets with oranges, feta, and arugala
I got both, with some broccolini sauteed in olive oil
Traded bites with Abe, who ordered the same thing, except he got a piece of Crostini (beet greens, ricotta, and pickled raisins) in lieu of the green stuff
Here’s my take on this cafe – yummy, yes. Love the seasonable, sustainable, organic business model. But not particularly amazing or adventurous; I feel like I can easily recreate the food at home, and it’s not really worth the hassle of the lines/parking/etc. This will probably be our last trip to Forage for a while.
If you visited my other blog Thick Dumpling Skin today, you already saw this video I did for National Eating Disorder Awareness week. I’ve teamed up with The National Organization of Women (NOW) for “Let’s Talk About It,” a project of their “Love Your Body Campaign.” Below is my story; please spread the word on your blogs/twitter/facebook/etc. to encourage others to make their own videos as well (submission guidelines here).
