Tempted by Tart? Sleep with the Farmer’s Daughter!

 

3 peppersYes I did sleep at the Farmer’s Daughter Hotel. I did not get to swim with the ducks but I will go back to do that! I decided to taste the new tempting summer creations at Tart restaurant and Chef Keith does not disappoint. I loved the grilled trout. I highly recommend it but honestly everything was wonderful. I loved the roasted eggplant and peanut puree, roasted farmers market eggplant and heirloom cherry tomatoes. The Pepper three ways looked like a traffic light with green, yellow and red peppers. It had grilled pardons with lime and salt, pickled farmers market peppers and stuffed sweet peppers with goat cheese, avocado honey, pecans and apricot. Truly fantastic.

I also loved the both salads I tasted: the Summer fruits salad has county line toy box melons, fresh figs, market plums, sprouts and herbs and chile lime vinaigrette and the heirloom tomato salad with gazpacho vinaigrette: shaved salted cucumbers, sourdough croutons and red watercress.

I did not save enough room for dessert but I will be back. Maybe this time I will stay in the No Tell Room! Or maybe I already did!

TART Restaurant and Coolhaus Ice Cream are Mint for Each Other
TART Gets Fresh with Frozen Treats and Tantalizing Ice Cream Cocktail, Coolhaus Dirty Mint Chip Julep
LOS ANGELES – July 17, 2015 – TART — the unique, onsite restaurant nestled inside the iconic Farmer’s Daughter Hotel that serves comfort food with a twist — is celebrating summertime by collaborating with the architecturally-inspired and beloved, LA-based gourmet ice cream company, Coolhaus.
To kick off the cool-down, TART’s executive chef, Keith Shutta, has dreamed up a refreshingly naughty but n-ice cream cocktail, called the Coolhaus Dirty Mint Chip Julep ($13). Coolhaus’ fresh mint infused ice cream, chocolate chips and a hint of brown sugar make a sweet partner for the wickedly good blend of Four Roses Bourbon and Crème de Menthe, that make up this perfect treat to beat the summer heat.
TART’s summer dessert menu has two other delicious new recruits: Coolhaus’ Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwich ($8) and the Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwich ($8).
“Adding Coolhaus to the menu and creating a cocktail with its all-natural ice cream is something no one else has done before and we know our guests love those unique experiences,” said Keith Shutta, TART’s executive chef. “Partnering with a local and loved business that also uses locally farmed and sourced goods is the perfect match for TART,” added Shutta.
“This partnership is a meeting of the minds, and taste buds. Coolhaus and TART both blend unusual flavors that develop into famous favorites, and I know that the Coolhaus Dirty Mint Chip Julep will become another local celebrity,” added Natasha Case, CEO and co-founder of Coolhaus.
Coolhaus’ ice cream sandwiches and the Coolhaus Dirty Mint Chip Julep are available at TART now, for a limited time. TART is located at 115 S. Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90036. For reservations, call (323) 556-2608 or visit: http://tartrestaurant.com/
