***** (5 stars)
This new offering from Grant Achatz far exceeded our expectations, which were already high. The trick to a good experience here is to sit at the downstairs prep kitchen counter, which offers a far quieter experience than upstairs, and a bargain 8-course tasting menu for a mere $85.
Every course was a home run, and there wasn’t a single course that wasn’t better than everything we’ve had this year on sister Restaurant Next’s tasting menus for far more money.
There’s a creative cocktail list, and an extensive menu of wines by the glass, so it’s easy to assemble your own pairing.
Service is friendly and knowledgeable, and it’s fun to watch your meal assembled before your eyes.
