On October 10th, Patina Restaurant in downtown LA will be celebrating their tenth anniversary in a big way. On that day only, guests can design their own tasting menu for just $10 per dish. For Patina, that's an amazing deal!

I thought this tuna and avocado combination would be like any other tuna tartar-like dish, but I was wrong. The flavors here were surprising and delightful and the tuna was fresh and almost melted in my mouth. The Albariño was a great wine, crisp, lightly sweet. This was my favorite pairing and wine of the day.
Butternut Squash Risotto, jamon Iberico, fontina, sage
Atlantic Black Bass, bacon crisp, artichoke, barigoule jus
Dessert: Green apple and coconut battera, french meringue.
Coconut butter crust and green apple ice. This dessert was one of the best desserts I've had lately. It was very light and cooling, the creamy coconut and the tart green apple were a playful yet elegant flavor combination.
I didn't discover it until later but Patina has a great loose leaf tea selection. Oh, well, next time!
The 10th anniversary celebration at Patina is a deal not to be missed. Make your reservation as soon as you finish reading this!
