    It looks like a play on a coddled egg and asparagus. Deconstructed gribiche sauce...with caviar "eggs" standing in for the usual coddled egg for dipping the asparagus stalk. The sauce might be a warm gelled sheet of "hollandaise" with just eggs mimosa on top, since I don't see the other ingredients for a gribiche (capers, etc).

    Clarification please. Are you asking about the plate the food is placed on or the food on the plate?

    The plate itself is what I am asking. Not the food.

    I saw those out here somewhere about a year ago, cant remember where.

    Always figgered I pick some up someday, but I cant find them on any of the online sites I use.

    Plain ones are all over, but those have the sauce bowl divet--top of my head I'd guess it's an

    asian cuisine item. Tough one; unlesss someone here knows it, I'll check with my local places.

    Where'd you get the pic? Have you followed up that lead?

    ETA:

    Bingo, score 1 point for at least the divet!

    (Those DO have a divet, right? :eek: )
