Luce, San Francisco CA
I can certainly appreciate an artfully plated dish, but this is going a bit far maybe. There are literally only four tiny pieces of beets on this plate. I understand that there are many components here, but give me some more damn beets! LOL, I’m only slightly joking… The beets were delicious, and so were the pickled cherries. I think that was a beet gelee too, but don’t quote me on that.
