After a month in the UK, a young friend of mine from LA had eaten just about every type of food available. On her last night here I took her to the Gay Hussar, mainly because I don't know of any Californian equivalent. Much as I like the Gay Hussar, for its history, its welcome and other non-food related reasons, I wasn't sure that the food would be anything other than filling and hearty. It was that: it was also delicious, attractively presented and charmingly served. She loved it and so did I!
A decade ago I worked nearby and visited the Gay Hussar once or twice a month. I liked it then, but the food was rarely more than Eastern European home cooking. Last night's dinner was much more than that and I shall be returning as soon as I can.
For the record, we ate foie gras and the cold cherry soup for starters, followed by venison goulash and goose as a main course. All delicious!
