Had I not heard from my business colleagues how lifetime amazing this place was, I may have had a different experience. Every taste was sublime, unusual, surprising, but it was just that, an ethereal, passing "taste." So while it was beautifully orchestrated and presented, there's something about a meal that should leave you satisfied or satiated, and this felt like tantalizing. No regrets, recommend if you've got the dough to spend, but it put forth the question on what the value of a culinary experience is. Once you taste something unlike anything you've ever had, the inclination is to want more of the same. We were teased by the "sturgeon soup" in the eggshell, a mere few drops; the smoked fish with the cream cheese, the melt-in-your mouth lamb; gone in instants! It's almost painful to recount how delightful it all was, how rich the wine pairings were. True, all 3 of us left full, but not satisfied, and the credit card bill that will linger on! Enough existentialism. Try once--see what you think.
