Where to Eat Wednesday - Palate

Last night I had a nice date with my friend Sabrina at Palate Food + Wine in Glendale. On Tuesdays they have $10 wine tasting in the back room. Side note - this place is huge! Last night it was a California Chardonnay tasting and we got 4 good sized pours of different Cali Chards. Delicious. The good thing about going to dinner with Sabrina is that we like to split so we can get a little taste of everything! So much fun! The only thing we didn't like was one of their "Mason Jar" appetizers - we got the potted pork since yelpers were raving about it. It was cold, and tasted like a mix of shredded pork and that liverwurst stuff my grandpa use to eat. I ate it, but only because I was hungry. Sabrina had one bite and said 'no thank you.' Everything else we were very happy with. Feast on the crappy iphone photos below (it was dark in there so I had to use the flash):

{Cheese Plate}

{Squid with Chickpeas and Broccoli}

{Sea Bass with Melted Kohlrabi (swoon), Endive, Brown Butter, and Hazelnuts}

{Dark Chocolate Pudding with Creme Fraiche and Sea Salt}

My mouth is watering all over again just thinking about this delicious dinner. And who knew kohlrabi was so freaking delicious? I'm hunting that German turnip down and cooking it up ASAP.

Peace, love, dinner dates, and happiness!
