All kindsa Eric Ripert

I was thinking about what to make for dinner on Valentine's Day and came across these suggestions by one of my favorite chefs (and Top Chef guest judges) Eric Ripert. I'm eager to check out his DC restaraunt, Westend Bistro. I've read in several reviews (here's one from the Washington Post) that the bistro hamburger is excellent, but I think if I make it over the Westend, I'll save that for my husband. I'm more interested in the blue bay mussels and skate with brown sugar and endive. Yum.

"A cook and a chef are different entities. 'Chef' is a title. But when you are a cook, that is who you are. It's your spine and your soul."
