I miss Bistro LQ like I miss decent Mexican food in France. Fortunately, Laurent Quenioux pops up from time to time around town, serving up his unique offerings for us, the foodies! His latest "fooding (http://www.bistrolq.com/lq-foodings)" will be held at Vertical Wine Bistro in Old Pasadena.

This is my second visit, and I hope you can join me!
