Orson @ SF
Another wonderful lab lunch on the sun-soaked terrace of Madera restaurant at the Rosewood hotel in Menlo park! During lunch, my research assistant Abby mentioned that she recently had dinner at Orson, Elizabeth Falkner's new place in San Francisco. Definitely added to my "must try" list. Predictably, the desserts were not good. Abby actually didn't finish hers, "dry" is what she called it. I've never been a fan of Falkner's desserts at Citizen cake, the cakes and pastries are definitely dry, at least all three times I've been there to try them. However, I've always enjoyed her cooking, which is ironic because she is best known for her pastry work.
