This Just in: Restaurant Press Releases in the CoC Mailbox

— by Caroline on Crack

For some reason I just got a ton of press releases in my email box so I thought I should take care of it all (well most of it) in one shot.

AMMO’s Three Courses Plus 3-Scoop Sundae for $30
This Hollywood restaurant is offering three courses of farm-to-table cuisine for $30 Mondays through Thursday and Friday and Saturday before 7pm. Choose from soup or Caesar salad and one of Executive Chef Julia Wolfson’s signature dishes: citrus-marinated Jidori half chicken, house-made pappardelle or lightly poached Scottish salmon. But the biggest selling point has to be that Build Your Own Sundae Menu allowing you to customize your dessert. A risotto and popcorn ice cream and brown butter sorbet topped with roasted salted pepitas or Tabasco and coconut & curry ice cream topped with chili-candied kumquats?
