We ate the whole menu...
Last night I dined there with friends to celebrate a birthday. All 6 of us chose the tasting menu accompanied by paired wines. Much to our surprise, we did not all get the same wines nor the same plates. In the end we had eaten every plate offered on the menu! I photographed my plates only otherwise it would have been the longest blog entry ever! I will mention the wine paired with the dish, however, I did not get the full names for most since there were so many bottles and dishes around.
To begin...fried cauliflower with white anchovies and a chipotle aoili. The cauliflower was very flavorful and the light batter and fresh oil did not mask the cauliflower taste. The aoili was fresh and subtle. Wine pairing - Gruner Veltliner
Wine pairing - 2008 Palmina Barbera
Overall, bravo. Though prices are a bit steep in my opinion, the service is impeccable and their attention to detail and their warmth is appreciated and rare.
