2018 Best Tasting Menu

Tasting Counter

Ambitious. Playful. Revelatory. Sound like a theater review? Well, indulging in one of chef Peter Ungár’s nine-course tasting menus is a lot like sitting down for a critically acclaimed performance. And it truly is an immersive one, as ticket-holding diners get to watch the chef and his team cook and plate each intricate dish—seaweed-cured kampachi with shiitake custard, tender pork shoulder in a pool of fermented red chili curry—in the small open kitchen. Applause, please.
