A visit to chef Peter Ungár’s culinary theater is transformative from start to finish. Take your seat, gaze upon the team of busy chefs, and let the show begin: an island of lobster custard and seaweed in a briny pool of uni broth; tangy sour-cream dumplings with crispy pancetta; and bite-size chocolate ganache cake with preserved strawberries, all personally plated with just enough time between courses. Who could have guessed such luxury lurked behind Aeronaut Brewing?
