Lee’s signature 19 ingredient salad – minus the cilantro for Akemi, which puts it at 18.

My $45 cocktail was served under a glass cloche surrounded by smoking wood chips.

Inside, a hand-chipped ice ball.    I dunno.  I’m still more of a hot chocolate guy.

  1. I am reminded of my dinner that I have a picture of in a special time last year when I was in Bangkok. The dinner was a limit menu and prepared in limited quantities. /

  2. I swear to God if I could “like” every single one of these pictures I would. And what a cool bunch of drinks. Alex’s dry ice experiment reminds me of many Halloween parties we threw in our 20s. It was a staple and I’m still surprised no one got hurt, from it or anything else.

  3. Your the best ! Thank you for sharing you blog. Can’t wait for the new season and the one after that. Raza crew rules !

  4. These pictures more than anything drive home the fact that the end is near…lots of fun before parting….until next season.

    Did you really have a $45 cocktail? I thought $15 for a martini is too much! I prefer my drinks on Happy Hour.

    Happy Easter to all!!

  5. Clever.
    Love the photo framed thru the base of a water glass trick
    and the adorable glassware with built in glass straw.
    Albeit, you can keep that over priced, dressed up, cocktail
    unless they were serving you a very rare aged whisky
    and the ice ball was formed with water from Jupiters moon, Europa,
    and hand chipped by the ghosts of Alexandros of Antioch, Donatello and Michelangelo working in unison.

    Hope everyone is enjoying their Easter weekend. xo

    As for me, I can hardly wait till Monday
    when the local stores mark down the leftover boxes
    of yellow marshmallow peeps
    so I can justify splurging on a whole case.
    I’m so friggin addicted to those tasty little chicks!

  6. I’m wondering how you would approach that salad without it winding up all over the table.

    They say that “eye appeal is half the meal”, and I guess that goes for drinks too, but $45 seems a bit much. But hey, it’s a special occasion! There’ll only ever be one Dark Matter season 3! It looks like a good time was had by all, and well deserved too.

  7. Wow, that food looks great! I don’t like cilantro either. It tastes like soap, yuck!

    Almost finished filming but how much longer do you stay in town?

  8. Akemi is entirely correct in skipping the cilantro. I too have the “tastes like soap” gene.

    Interesting cocktails. Once upon a time I would happily splurge on unique experiences, but the budget these days is more dollar margaritas on a Mexican beach …

  9. Love that picture! Alex has a great eye, has he considered directing an ep? That salad looks tasty, and now I don’t feel so guilty about adding a ridiculous amount of toppings to my cardboard-like Boboli crust this weekend.

    It wasn’t quite a guilt free pizza but it was able to add less sauce and way more veggie toppings.
