Mario is one of my favorites as well. The guy has shown that he can go outside and beyond his comfort zone and incorporate all kinds of flavors into his dishes. He has amazed me with his versatility and his willigness to try different thing.

Looks great!

I picked up Mario's last book and saw that he likes Italian/Mexican fusion cuisine quite a bit.

Bobby is ok. I think a lot of it is just for show. While I don't own any of his books, I have referenced some of his recipes on FoodTv.com.

I just wanted to mention that I thought the horchata beurre-blanc was very clever. If you don't mind me asking, what did you use in the sauce to help it compliment the fish and pico de gallo better?

I used a chicken stock reduction, lime, fennel, tahini, and Mexican chocolate.
