I tried the tasting menu last night, and it was such a fun meal - five courses that were full of surprises, just the thing for a foodie. To give you an example, the second course, a salad, consisted of green papaya, pineapple, foraged grape leaves, kimchi essence, sesame oil powder, and foraged cattail pollen. My entree of Korean Elk was wonderfully spiced and SO tender, and I'm not usually a fan of game meat but figured I'd trust the chef's recommendation. I'm glad I did. The chef stopped by before my entree and during dessert, and my server was friendly and knowledgeable. You'll want to allow 2.5 to 3 hours for so many courses. I hope to bring my husband with me next time.
