|amuse bouche: trio of eggplant, watercress soup, grapefuit something or other. unfortunately the waiter had a strong french accent so if it wasn't on the menu, i have no idea what was served|
|duck terrine with sicilian pistachio, rose petal poached rhubarb, black cardamom gelee, young mesclun. all the garnish sounds frivolous, but everything tasted amazing together|
|Duo of octopus special: tempura octopus and grilled octopus with a whole mess of garnish|
|seared tuna with iberico ham, chickpea panisse and green garbonzo beans. i've never seen green garbanzo beans before and was quite excited when this dish came out|
|duo of baby lamb: chop and loin. so cute and yummy|
|uh yeah---that's all the dessert that came out: fresh baked madelines, a special birthday tart, cheese plate and a caramel, hazelnut dulce de leche dessert|
|and THEN, petit fours came out!|
What an unforgettable meal. Afterwards, we toured the kitchen and even met Daniel Boulud himself! I hope to have an opportunity to eat here again!
