Another place in Los Angeles that seemed very much somewhere to be seen, but it delivered better food than the other trendy places that I went to. Linq has grey marble walls, a fireplace at one end of the narrow dining room and lighting so subdued that you virtually needed a torch to read the menu. My spring rolls of pork and prawn were capable enough, with a light batter and a pleasant sweet and sour sauce (12/20). Better were crab cakes, well made with a salad that featured fresh leaves and a good dressing, a sweet corn salsa and a home-made tartare sauce. (14/20).
For the main course, Chilean sea bass was well timed, with a lemon grass and coriander sauce, some green beans and a wasabi mash, with a couple of julienned carrots (14/20). I had three generous pork medallions wrapped in bacon, served with a surprisingly good barley risotto and a red wine sauce (15/20). A raspberry and almond frangipane tart (14/20) was better than an apple tart with vanilla ice cream (13/20). Service was good. Overall, this probably the best food we ate in LA on this 2001 trip.
