I'm not really a fine dining kind of person. Well not until I went to Grace. This meal was so spectacular and so memorable...it was truly a once in a lifetime experience for me. Luckily they let me take lots of pictures so I could share this with you guys. Here is what I had...
Here is the amuse bouche. The orange piece on the end was a candy covered clementine slice. How amazing is that?
Meyer Lemon: Osetara caviar, kumquat jam, chive blossom.
Chilled Scallop: hibiscus tea, five licorice flavored herbs.
Grilled Wagyu Beef: matsutake, salsify, mashua leaf. Can someone tell me what any of these are?
Poached Quince: elderflower, tamarind juice, bronze fennel.
Caramelized Sudachi: toasted cashews, asian pear, nasturtium.
Bitter Chocolate: raw chestnut, persimmon, lemon mint.
Real Cocoa Nibs and Truffled Chocolate. Ridiculously good.
This was a bonus round. A chocolate truffle and salty and sweet popcorn.
Here are a couple of pictures of the kitchen...
Just check out their pantry. I mean, this place was incredible.
I have a few others on my fine dining check list...I'll keep you posted on my adventures. Stay hungry!
