2012 BEST Tasting Menu

L’Espalier

Chef Frank McClelland’s celebrated dining room offers not one, but two extravagant tasting options. There’s the "Seasonal Degustation"—a six-course meal headlined by dishes like Hudson Valley foie gras (take that, California!) with angelica and oatmeal-nut tuile, or lamb alongside roasted figs and caramelized fennel, both featuring ingredients sourced from the chef’s own Essex farm. Not lavish enough for you? Then choose the $200 "Chef’s Tasting Journey," and you’ll be treated to an hours-long repast replete with caviar and truffles.
