Birthday Celebration at FO and The Ritz!

What a nice Saturday evening I had. I went out to celebrate two Sept bdays with some friends. We were celebrating Paul and Annie's bdays and started our evening at the very much hyped FATHER'S OFFICE in Culver City.

This is the LA place that made "GastroPub" the latest hot place to go. It is a full bar with high end bar food. No waiters or condiments. You order at the bar and then find a seat for yourself.

We tried all the appetizers as well as a couple specials. This is the "Spanish Mushrooms."


This is the burger you get at Father's Office...the Office Burger! Let me say...it is a good burger...but honestly, I still think In & Out and Apple Pan is better. Not by too much... but a tad better. Maybe it was the hype...but I was expecting A LOT.....

Detail of the top sirloin burger....

I have always wanted to try BONE MARROW...and I was not disappointed...it was so rich and decadent!

and the other famous thing FO is famous for...

sweet potato frites.....

after a deelish meal we headed over to the Ritz Carlton in Marina Del Rey for some dessert and drinks....this is a cheesecake from the pastry chef at the Ritz.

Heaven on a plate...Berry Crumble....OMG! So good....

For the chocolate lovers...this is the MOLTEN CHOCOLATE CAKE...

the rest of the pics are shall we say...PRIVATE...but put it this way...we had FUN!!! So to protect the parties involved no more pics!
