lacma stark bar roasted chile chorizo dates goat cheese almond sauceWood-roasted chile + chorizo + dates + goat cheese + almond sauce = glorified chile relleno (I’m sorry but this “bar bite” was a “bit bland.”  It tasted like Hormel chili with Ortega green chiles… straight out of a can.  Pretty, but this limpness is not worth whatever I paid for it.)

    Odd, Ray’s chili relleno was one of the best (and the most publicly lauded) things I tasted on the menu. Morningstar’s charcuteries also rival anything outside of Waterloo & City, etc.

    It’s too bad, I really love the space, and now they have evening free parking + HH

    • I really wanted to enjoy the wood-roasted chile, especially since I loved the roster of ingredients used, but honestly, I felt the flavor was underdeveloped, the dish, overrated. I should have opted for the charcuterie plate. Much love to the LACMA, though!
