Spotlight: Market To Table


Don’t assume, as I did, that Market to Table is just another way of saying farm to table.

(Though not exclusively; indeed some items come from as close as a rooftop garden.) But that does not diminish the overall high quality of the food served here.

It’s a little bit like dining in an IMAX theater. The observatory designation is a brilliant one because an observatory and Hollywood have the same obsession: stars. Foodwise, this is still Planet Hollywood. One comes here for the spectacle, the memorabilia and the atmospherics, one doesn’t come here for fine dining. Even with — or especially because of? …
