Luce, San Francisco CA

Wow, this was a successful dish for me! The thinly sliced beef was delicious and the toasted barley pieces were fun to crunch. The deep aroma of the beef consomme was wonderful and the crispy sweetbreads were rich and tasty too. The summer truffle had a mild aroma, but had a great flaky texture that added to the dish.

The prawns were really good in this dish, but it was the accompaniments that really made it interesting. The variegated leaves were beautiful and the combination of different herbs and melon were new and delicious.
