From beginning to end the meal was filled with delightful tastes and surprises. The miniature "marshmallow" which started the dinner. (don't eat it). The mysterious menu which contains only ingredients. The risotto which was really pearls of tapioca. (covered with truffle, one of the only options you have.)
If I have a quibble it is that we were never asked about any food issues so my husband missed out on a delicious bite of grapefruit. But...it was only a bite.
The lobster on split pea purée and beneath a thin slice of hibiscus gelee may have been the most beautiful bite of the night, but the flavor exceeded even it's gorgeous appearance. The duck l'orange may have ruined me for that dish anywhere else!
A pear terrine and the suckling pig were the only (minor) disappointments amid a steady stream of delights!
Service was friendly, attentive, and continuous. It seems odd to describe a 2 1/2 hour meal as rushed, but a minute or two between courses would have been nicer.
If we are ever in the area again we will DEFINITELY return!!!
