Laurent Quenioux Pops Up at Good Girl Dinette, With Escamoles
Fresh off his stint of "green-friendly" dinners chef Laurent Quenioux will be taking up residence at Highland Park's Good Girl Dinette, serving four dinners between May 7 and May 22. On the menu will be the usual kaleidoscope of bizarro ingredients, which this time will feature escamoles, a type of ant larvae culled from agave plants that's described by some as "insect caviar." Quenioux smuggles them in specially from Mexico, where they are known as a pre-Columbian Aztec delicacy.
Reservations for the five-course, $58 dinner can be made here. The dinners will be strictly BYOB and will include a return of the famous 30-selection LQ@SK cheese cart, home to some of the funkiest selections in town, which can be sampled for an additional supplement.
