**** (4 stars)
I’ve been wanting to go to a Stinking Rose since I first saw one many, many years ago in San Francisco. I was expecting it to smell of garlic and for every dish to have an overwhelming taste of garlic, but that was far from the case. Garlic was very judiciously used to enhance each dish without being the focus.
By far the best thing we had was the seafood skillet, particularly the mussels. This was the best mussel preparation I’ve ever had.
Prime rib and the 40 clove chicken were good but not remarkable.
Garlic cream is an interesting experience you probably will only want to try once!
