Had a great dinner last Thursday night with my friend, Ambassador Roger Noriega, at TART -- a restaurant located at the Farmer's Daughter Hotel on Fairfax Boulevard.
Roger and I became fast friends when I lived in Washington, DC during the 80s. Now that we live on separate coasts we haven't been as in touch, so it was a nice chance to catch-up.
I've long wanted to try TART, so this was a good opportunity. I really liked its menu of "fancy" comfort food. If you go you must try the macaroni and cheese -- out of this world.
TART is at the Farmer's Daughter Hotel, best known as the lucky place for "The Price is Right" contestants to stay. Located directly across the street from CBS, hotel guests can roll out of bed and 2 or 3 a.m. and still have plenty of time to get in line by 3:30 a.m. to see the show taped and have their chance to "Come on Down!" Or they can just stay in their room and watch it on TV. That seems a lot easier to me.

A transatlantic crossing aboard a Cunard ocean liner is on my bucket list.
In the meantime, I enjoyed brunch yesterday on the Queen Mary in Long Beach.
Held in the former First Class Dining Room, I was impressed by the variety of selections and surprised by the quality.
Sadly, after brunch, GeezBob -- who was celebrating a birthday -- and I were no closer to London than when we started.
