Cuisine Contemporary

over $75

Don't miss the street views directly into this kitchen as you enter-the chefs here are preparing a series of masterpieces. Outside in the courtyard, benches are exactly the kind of place to linger, after a regal repast. The interior is awash in earthy colors, sleek banquettes, and oversized cushions. The slate-gray dining room is serene with clean lines drawing the eye across the meticulous design, while the staff is impressively warm and relaxed for a restaurant of this caliber. Chef Corey Lee's nightly tasting menu is a unique marriage of contemporary American and Korean influences and Master Sommelier Yoon Ha oversees an exceptional beverage program. Dishes promise a fascinating interplay of ingredients, as seen in the potato salad crowned with mirin-glazed anchovies and spirals of mild red chili. Find subtlety and elegance in raw fluke seasoned with sesame oil and sandwiched between crisp sesame leaves; while sea bream served in an aged tangerine jus with black trumpet mushrooms is royally decadent. Rich, marbled beef reaches a new height of excellence when prepared with charred scallion sauce, ramps, and meaty morels. Finally, a striking dessert of luscious coconut cream with strawberry gelée, tapioca pearls, and topped with a thin disc of meringue, will have you seeing stars.
