#BestMeals2013: an exquisite lunch with @TonyVallone

Click here for my Houston Press Champagne and sparkling New Year’s eve recommendations.

I had so many extraordinary meals this year at my friend and client Tony’s restaurants this year. But this repast at his flagship Tony’s in October was a poetica of elegant and thoughtful cookery and it’s one of my #BestMeals2013.

Tony had me at the deconstructed vitello tonnato
