The Black Market Bailout 2

Just to follow up my last post that mentioned illicit food places, the West coast also has its share of these. I was listening to the People's Radio network (CBC Radio 1) last evening, to a program called The Main Ingredient. They highlighted a "floating restaurant" called The Wandering Spoon  in Vancouver BC. Three regular daytime chefs cooking whatever they like to discerning and willing patrons without government oversight, regulation or constraint (and for a lower price too). What a concept!
Just to the South in Seattle there was a chef that prepares black market buntings in the French way. The pictured Ortolan bunting is apparently delicious eaten plucked and whole, but must be smuggled into the US from Europe where it is endangered. Naughty boys!
