The lighting at the new Lardo - Westside is excellent, so this week's post-review photo roundup is nothing like the wet-yeti-on-security-cam footage you typically see from me. Also, in the busy lunchtime environment among the thirty other people photographing their lovely sandwiches, I feel a bit brash and liberated. I'm starting to tell myself, "if you're the only one not taking pictures, they'll make you for a critic." If you want to hide something, put it in plain sight, indeed.
As this week's review hopefully makes clear, Lardo is worthy of your visit. Brillat-Savarin tossed off the old saw, "We can learn to be cooks, but we must be born knowing how to roast," and Rick Gencarelli was clearly born with an innate empathy for the eye of the meat.
Herewith, the rest of my photo files from this installment, after the jump!
