    This stuff sounds excellent. Uni, cabrito, bacalao gnocchi, smoked sturgeon, poached egg. Not necessarily in that order.

    You should do a fancy pants taco truck and serve lunch. Meals on wheels for food geeks.

  3. i would love to follow chef oringer’s lead and open a small place in the heights or lower westheimer serving great tacos & ceviches – open for lunch only (similar to la mar in lima peru…)
