Having been lucky enough to eat at the Herb Farm with Jerry Traunfeld as chef, we were really looking forward to Poppy, and it did not disappoint. The ten small dishes on the thali were like an Herb Farm meal in miniature, without the spectacle and huge price (there was even an herb garden out back). Each dish was carefully seasoned with flavors balanced against one another. The lavender duck breast was sensational, as was the salmon with bacon and chanterelles. The kohlrabi in coconut milk was typical of the Asian inclinations of the menu, which included a fresh apricot pickle and a large poppy-seed nan. More Italian-leaning items included a roasted radicchio salad and a zucchini gratin. Similar inspiration in the cocktails and desserts. Superb quality for an affordable price. Live long and prosper, Poppy (and JT)!
