Cooking Highbrow, Craving Low
We couldn't help but notice mention of a couple local Cali institutions in Jane Levere's NY Times piece about the remarkably unsophisticated daytime food tastes of contemporary culinary luminaries. Turns out famed New York-based chef Daniel Boulud recently visited the Apple Pan, while French Laundry and Per Se super star chef Thomas Keller relishes the In-N-Out burger--fries--shake--trifecta.
It's hard to take issue with these choices. The Apple Pan burger isn't always the cat's meow (whereas IOHO the pie is), but we've rushed many a Cali native to the Sepulveda In-N-Out location within minutes of arriving at LAX.
