87: Spicy Grilled Broccoli from FnB

If you haven't yet eaten at FnB, we've gotta ask: What are you waiting for? Charleen Badman's twist on contemporary American cuisine is tight -- with an emphasis on local ingredients and plenty of fresh vegetables.

Which brings us to Number 87, which we'll let FnB owner and host-with-the-most Pavle Milic describe for us.

In Milic's words, the spicy grilled broccoli: local, organic florets marinated in garlic, chile and lemon...mesquite grilled to impart smokey love then served over tangerine aioli to simmer down the spice and garnished with roasted pistachios for additional crunch.

Trust us, it tastes even better than it sounds. And that's saying something.
