Best Meal in Des Moines
Before I forget, the best restaurant meal I had in Des Moines was, hands down, no contest, Luca.
It's an Italian restaurant -- "warehouse district " style. The menu is on one small sheet, price fixed for appetizer and entree. They welcome idiosyncratic requests like "no sauce" and "can I have an appetizer portion of the entree as my appetizer along with my entree.) The food was fabulous, the service terrific and the ambience and the helpful, young waiter made me want to hang there for hours, except we had to get to the Edwards-Mellencamp event. As I said to Jane, Linda and the two Des Moines bloggers who had invited us there for dinner(it's at 420 Locust), "We're not in Kansas any more."
