After many many months of longing and saving our cash we are going to L2O for dinner tonight (valentines surprise). Every since Laurent Gras came to Chicago and started blogging about L2O I have been very interested in what he is doing at L2O and hoping to try it. Currently I believe it is the (or one of) most expensive restaurants in Chicago. Tough to beat Charlie Trotters but he is right up there with them. Of course I am excited to try the food (who wouldn't want to try Tuna snow) but I am also very very interested to try "The Clover" coffee machine they have. Have you heard of it? It is a very rare and special coffee maker that received a lot of press and then feel off the map. L2O is one of the few restaurants to own a clover which supposedly makes some of the most incredible coffee you will taste. What happened to the clover was not long after L2O purchased theirs Starbucks bought the company. So now if you want to try this amazing coffee there are only a few starbucks in the US where you can and as far as I know L2O. So after a long wait I am going to L2O tonight and not only do I get to try some amazing food from a very amazing chef I also get to try the much talked about "Clover" coffee maker. If you have not checked out chef Laurent Gra's blog I highly recommend it: L2O Blog Blog post about the Clover L2O Blog: The Clover Anyone been to L2O yet? Did you try the clover coffee?
