Anyone been to The Stinking Rose? It's a restaurant in L.A. that pays homage to garlic. Their tagline goes "We season our garlic with food." Their brochure featured Dracula who found their food irrestible. I was there many years ago and remember liking the food. The setting was medieval and opulent; kind of like how you'd imagine Dracula's lair to be. I remember dark interiors with lots of red velvet drapes, tufted chairs and chandeliers. Each table had a nice little burner for heating the complimentary roasted garlic bulbs in olive oil (before spreading onto bread). It was a fun experience...!

We have a restaurant called "Thats Aroma" here in town that features garlic that way. Some of their stuff was good, but they didn't use the freshest ingredients for some of their dishes and it doesn't matter how much garlic you use if your shrimp is less than fresh. BLECH! The garlic ice cream was gross too!

I went to the Stinking Rose in San Francisco about 15-20 years ago. It wasn't as nice as the LA restaurant sounds. The food was forgettable. The waiter recommended we skip the garlic ice cream and go to a nearby Italian bakery for dessert.
