Wilshire is one of our favorite restaurants. We have only been for dinner and decided that a leisurely lunch outside at our favorite table on a bright sunny afternoon would be perfect. We only ordered an appetizer and a main.
BYO White Wine
Ahi Tuna tartar, avocado, sesame seaweed, yuzu, togarashi, shiso, nori strips, wonton crisps – well-balanced, super premium tuna and a perfect beginning.
Prime Rib French Dip, horseradish creme fraiche, au jus (John had this on the side), fries – John said OK
Soft Shell Crab po-boy, cabbage slaw, remoulade, heirloom tomato, truffled potato chips
The po-boy opened – where oh where is the crab?? – I was anticipating a plump, crusty soft shell and what I got was a tiny bit of limp crab with a huge amount of potato chips. I took one bite of the the po-boy and rejected it. To the restaurant’s credit, it was taken off the bill.
Soft Shell Crab from Wilshire from one of our dinners – this is why I ordered the po-boy and what I anticipated – a plump, perfectly battered and fried soft shell.
A real Soft Shell po-boy – New Orleans
To replace the po-boy – Hamachi, ponzu, wasabi, cilantro – excellent with sushi grade fish
A gift – Coconut Creme brulee with fresh berries
A lovely place to have lunch – I just wish the entrees were the equal of the appetizers.
