Don't miss the street views directly into this kitchen as you enter—these chefs are preparing a masterpiece. Outside in the modern courtyard, benches are exactly the kind of place to linger peacefully. The interior is awash in earthy colors covering sleek banquettes and oversized cushions. The slate-gray dining room is serene with clean lines drawing the eye across the meticulous design, while staff are impressively warm and relaxed for a restaurant of this caliber. Chef Corey Lee's nightly tasting menu is a truly unique marriage of contemporary American and Korean influences. Dishes promise a fascinating interplay of flavors, as in the cooked romaine hearts bathed in caramelized anchovy, chili, and cilantro. Find subtlety and elegance in the wild bamboo fungi and shoots with chicken and cabbage in a lush broth. A silky custard with Jinhua ham, Dungeness crab, and flecks of gold leaf and truffle is royally decadent. Duck reaches a height of technical complexity when prepared with turnips, lam kok olives, dandelion, and hot mustard. A spectacular dessert composed of luscious fresh yuba skin surrounding creamy almond custard with dried yuba and white chocolate will have you seeing stars.
