Off the Rails

Ate with abandon at Benu (former French Laundry chef de cuisine Corey Lee's brand-spankin' new restaurant) last night. We had the tasting menu: Fifteen courses of goodness -- some of which was decidedly non-Paleo (but whatever -- my "if you're going to make an exception to your diet, make sure it's worth it" rule is still in effect). I downed everything save for some pieces of brioche that came with the monkfish liver torchon.

The meal was totally worth it, though I'm hungrier this morning than I've been in a long time. M too. Wonder if this has anything to do with ingesting a bolus of sugar for the first time in quite a while.
