Hey shroomgirl - have you ever been to a place in Columbia called Le Petit Bouchon? A husbaand and wife team who used to work with me opened it a couple of years ago.

Nope but I've heard of it.....Great stuff. Think they would want to be connected to the farmers in their area?

For those of you in the Kansas City area I got to meet Cody Hogan of Lydias....this guy sounds like fun. He buys from 80 local farmers, meats and cheeses too. Uses alot of secondary cuts and has work with Alice Waters at Chez Panisse and Lydia in NYC...
Sounds like a good one.

I've not been to any of them....guess I better start checking them out.
Trattatoria Marcella is NEW Italian the Komerick brothers run it....polenta fries with wild mushrooms in maderia sauce with bits of gorgonzolla and tomatoes...YES this is memorable....Many adore their lobster risotto.
Lorenzos is new on the Hill and there has been alot of good buzz on it.
