Best bite.

No dish has so unfairly fallen so far in the culinary world as old-fashioned hash. John Ringling used to eat it by the pound, according to his cook (sometimes with a dozen or so poached eggs on top), and Ringling was certainly no fool when it came to food.

Enter Ooh La La!, a chef-owned continental-style bistro in Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island, where beef Wellington and filet mignon are specialties and chef Damon Presswood is wise enough to buy whole beef filets that are trimmed out in his own kitchen, so he knows he's serving exactly the quality wanted.

Every other Sunday morning Ooh La La! has a special on the breakfast/lunch menu of the most flavorful beef hash you've ever put into your mouth. The meat is those trimmings from the top-quality beef filets. And the taste is such that you'll understand why hash has been a favorite of kings, circus and otherwise.

But it's important to remember that the dish ($9) is served only every other Sunday, so call ahead (941-778-5320) and reserve your table for a dish that modern fashion has chosen in its ignorance to forget.
