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

fresh santa barbara uni toast

grilled foie gras dumplings, port glazed figs & passion fruit

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!

shutting down the place, as per usual. oh hey, did you want me to leave yet?
