WanderFood Wednesday: fine dining in Black Rock City

As has been previously documented, Mark & I eat way better than the Average Burner. Because we're such foodie-geeks, we had a blast cooking for ourselves and our campmates during Burning Man this year. So it was a pleasant surprise to come across other fine dining options in our neighborhood.

Yes, people really do come to Burning Man to cook for their neighbors. And no money changes hands. If one is inclined to contribute something to these camps, in the way of spare ingredients, alcohol, or volunteering to help clean up, that's appreciated. But it's not necessary.

Literally next door to our camp was The Sacred Cow Grille, serving (what else?) Indian cuisine! Tasty and fabulous. Mark happened to make our reservation on the same night as a wedding that most of our campmates were attending, so he grabbed some random hotties to join us for the meal.

The place was decked out in oasis shabby-chic, with plenty of couches to lounge on and hot chai served as we arrived.

The playarific waitress came over and pretended to take our order, asking "If you could have anything at all, what would you like to have for dinner tonight?" Mark stumped her with Lobster Malabar. Didn't matter, we all got the same thing, with veg or non-veg options.

Another fine dining establishment, this one a few blocks away, was L'Homme Flambé. Zut alors!

We didn't get a chance to try this place out, but judging from the signage in front, it was a saucy spot indeed.

Not sure how much of this is readable, so here's a quick transcription of the snarky signage:

If you're wearing something we don't like you may have to take it off.

Not from the Michelin Guide, from some other tire company
