Sean’s Last Meal

The Signature pie from Blue Ribbon Pizzeria in Encinitas, with ricotta, lemon zest and extra calabrian chili, alongside a little gems caesar with anchovy and extra parm. Then, the Spinach Gnochetti with roasted bone marrow from Bestia in LA. For dessert, a big scoop of Salt & Straw Sea Salt Caramel ice cream… and a bottle of Cab Franc to wash it all down!
