bleu cheese and triple creme with raspberry preserves.
take home shortbread cookies.
when it was all said and done, our four hour marathon at lcg was well worth its big city price tag, and i feel the restaurant would certainly have one star michelin potential if it were located in chicago, new york, or san francisco. aside from a bit of ingredient and flavor repetition (radishes and acid), i was very happy with each and every dish, and would be hard pressed to name anything a "dud." i was also quite pleased with daniels as a wine director, and found his wine and beer pairings to be some of the most interesting i have had this year. as someone who travels for good food, i am very excited to have a place as progressive as lcg in st. louis, and although the gtm is what i would consider a "vaction meal" in terms of price, i hope to be able to visit a few times in the next year to see how the ever changing menu evolves.
