Cuisine Californian

More than $75

No expense has ever been spared in this massive wow-inducing space. There are enough shining copper pots to supply a village of restaurants in France; wood tables, smart chairs, and faux-fur rugs mean that someone has recently been to Scandinavia. There are also no barriers between the kitchen and dining areas—underscored by the chefs' visits to each table, personally presenting and describing dishes. Dining here is gorgeous yet polarizing with most reactions being love or hate. Is the staff warm and convivial or somewhat pompous? Did the chef just interrupt you to present the next course? Fan of the classic 80s soundtrack? One thing that is undeniable is the level of extraordinary skill and detail that Chef Joshua Skenes uses to craft each dish on his spontaneous menu. Meals begin with a dazzling parade of sea creatures (some sourced by their privately-commissioned fishing boat), which are undeniably exceptional. Artichoke hearts may be served with a gentle crunch, while firm, fresh scallops are brought to an entirely new dimension with sauce barigoule. Thick batons of toast are soaked in a complex soy mixture and topped with a lush lobe of uni displaying the essence of culinary brilliance here.
