A couple of shots of the current menu. The offerings change once every three months or so.
I had two tastings.
Each Peach tasting
left to right: almond cake, white chocolate chantilly (in the style of herve this), cold roasted peach, aspic with basil blossoms
The roasted peach tempered the chantilly’s sweetness whilst the aspic provided a refreshing finish.
Taplas: America’s next savory petits
left to right: green curry/coconut cream, tarte fine arugula (w/ cassia shortbread cookie), tomato water gelee, miso honey ganache lollipops with pancetta finanicer
Lustau ‘Emperatriz Eugenia’ Oloroso sherry
Of the offerings here, I felt that the gelee didn’t quite work with the rest as flavorwise, it was a bit jarring after having consumed just about everything else. Pancetta finanicer was the best of the lot in my opinion, followed by the ganache lollipops and the green curry/coconut cream.
Out of 10? A slightly low to moderate 8. Not everything works but that’s to be expected. Still, R4D deserves a followup visit; there were a host of other things on the menu that I’d love to try but didn’t have time for given that tonight was a “school night”.
