A Terrific Tasting Menu at X20

Karen from Australia is visiting again — and this time she brought a friend. Andree had never been to New York, and what better tour guide than Karen? We met them for dinner on Tuesday night, and, since it was a school night for us, they were kind enough to meet us halfway. What an inspired choice in X20! The food was delicious, as always, and the view was grand. The evening was a blast, too. Here, the Sashimi White Tuna with Chilled Yuzu Ponzu with American Sturgeon Caviar & Pickled Organic Carrot.
