Fodor's Expert Review Benu
Chef Corey Lee's three-Michelin-star fine dining mecca is a must-stop for those who hop from city to city collecting memorable meals. At this tasting menu–only restaurant, each course is impossibly meticulous, a marvel of textures and flavors. Lee, formerly of French Laundry, handles Asian components and ingredients—such as xiaolongbao (soup dumplings) and sea cucumber—with a Western gastronomic touch. You may find spectacular dishes like an haute take on barbecued quail with black truffle steamed buns or a caviar-adorned seaweed egg custard. An extremely professional staff is behind the quick pacing and on-point wine pairings. Bare-wood tables and a hip, minimalistic interior guarantee concentration on the plate. The tasting menu is mandatory and memorable.
