gluttony is a sin, but not during thanksgiving, and definitely not in new york, so there wouldn’t be a more appropriate time to share with you my experience with the 3 michelin-starred restaurant’s impressive autumn tasting menu [with wine pairing, well why not?]. it was such a delightful experience + the portions are an agreeably abundant amount for humans. let the
drooling glory begin:
refreshing amuse bouche
toasted egg yolk, caviar, & herbs
japanese snapper carpaccio, ginger, white radish, olive oil
fresh santa barbara uni toast
grilled foie gras dumplings, port glazed figs & passion fruit
arctic char, spiced jade emulsion and tender celeriac – only complaint was that the sauce was bit salty
steamed maine lobster, summer squash, yuzu vinaigrette
rare rack of lamb, smoked chili glaze, new onion compote, pole beans
i had to tap out on the last 3 after tasting just a bit to reserve a little space for the sweets!
unfinished glasses of wine from the pairing. *smh with disapproval* let the glasses never be empty!
late harvest dessert pairing
classic chocolate dessert tasting
lavendar macarons + other weight increasers
using my hands, keepin’ it classy
shutting down the place, as per usual. oh hey, did you want me to leave yet?
so, do we feel heavier yet? awesome.
