At first I was wowed by the cool factor but then I sort of wished I could browse a paper list and let my eye fall where it may. I picked a couple things and then asked the sommelier for his recs:

null

Amuse. Scallops with truffle:

null

Bread:

null

Hamachi appetizer. Light and lovely:

null

Mayan shrimp and leeks viaigrette with cardamom rocket and dill:

null

Flash-seared calamari with caulifower custard, pea shoots and some kind of flan:

null

Red pepper flan with crab meat:

null

Wild mushroom martini with spinach fondue, poached egg and pancetta:

null

All were good but the calamari was the real winner. The mushroom was a little rich for my blood.

Spice=roasted cod with linguica sausage and manilla clams:

null

Gnocchi with ricotta, summer vegetables and a yellow tomato beurre blanc:

null

Gianonne chicken with speck tart, onion greens and porcini mushroom jus:

null

Hot-smoked duck breast with yellow carrot coulis:

null

Watermelon and tomato salad with green flower goat cheese:

null

Cod was the best. All were really really good. A case of entrees besting appetizers, which is so very rare. I really adored every bite.

Dessert. Apricot and blueberry with creme fraiche or yogurt ice cream. (canít remember which i just remember the amazing sour taste):

They sent out two desserts so I never saw their names:

Something with chocolate milk balls. Amazing:

null

And my favorite. I donít know whatís in it but it was bracing, sweet, sour, cold and crunchy all at once. One of my favorite desserts in a very long time.
