Cuisine Contemporary

Free your mind, keep your expectations high, and ignore the hand-made sign and desolate locale that make this undeniably edgy restaurant seem like a David Lynch movie. No one comes here for high-end pampering; rather, the interior is an amalgam of heavy wood timber, zinc ductwork, abstract art, and a homespun curtain made of wine corks. The open kitchen and its team of freewheeling anti-heroes lend a dinner-party vibe, with guests bringing bottles of bourbon as gifts for the chefs and others getting up to mingle. Those who prefer some sort of ice-breaker before jumping into the spirited conversation over the 14-course prix-fixe may rest assured that the first dish must be licked directly off the plate. That fresh uni arrives on a bed of smoked shiitake mushrooms with trout roe to cut the richness, colorful nasturtium leaves, and citrusy yuzu jelly. A supremely smooth potato soup has tremendous depth of flavor, topped with crisped potato cubes, and finished with nitrogen frozen vanilla granité. Beguiling simplicity is at the heart of a stunning slice of fine-grained, pink, and delicate antelope served in a light jus with chewy sautéed ramps, mixed baby vegetables, and pickled rhubarb.
