This story involves a culinary godmother and inspirational meals at Tavern on the Green. It’s a smattering of European feasts in an ancient hillside restaurant; the smokiness of lamb, croquet games played in the sun with too much bubbly. The heat of a kitchen; the heart pounding excitement of television and the firm handshake of everyday business. That whimsy newness, the spark of innovation. The crowd-squeezing energy of dineLA Restaurant Week. Hurried phone calls and black coffee; discussions that build a community and sketches of ideas when words just aren’t enough. Tastes and bites that evoke sweet sighs, too many toasts to count. Relationships forged by fire and thrived on respect.
