Gordon? Who’s Gordon? The one and only Gordon Ramsay of Hell’s Kitchen! He recently opened a place at The Grove in Los Angeles called The Fat Cow and we paid him a visit. Not only did we have a great meal, but we were happily surprised to find our friend Dave working there. Don’t let the shirt and face fool you. Dave is one of the nicest guys around…Grumpy Cow does not describe him at all.
Anyway, back to our dinner. We ordered a variety of items including a beautiful and delicious gazpacho. We also ordered brussels sprouts and curried cauliflower. But the highlight of the meal was Gordon’s Shepherd’s Pie made with braised lamb (and lots of it!) and covered in a cloud of mashed potatoes. Served in a cute little skillet, it’s a perfect dish to share with your date. Matt and I enjoyed every bite, which I am declaring my best of the week!
