Short summary (since this meal was > half a year ago): good meal set in a very intimate setting (there were more chefs working behind the counter than there were of us diners). It was fun to see the chefs work with their modernist cuisine magic in person, although it’s not as “interactive” as one may think, a la sushi bar. Overall, while there were a couple of mishaps, the dinner was technically on point and fairly creative (especially if you’re not familiar with “molecular gastronomy”). However, I’m not so sure if it’s worth the price of admission ($195/person). If money was no issue, then I have no problem recommending it, since it was still a very good meal and extremely exclusive (something to brag about to your friends). But at that price point, it wasn’t as head-turning as one was expecting and hoping, and once the smoke cleared out and the magic was gone (literally), you’re sometimes left with something that you might be able to have at a more conventional and less prestigious place. Keep in mind that the price does NOT weigh into the grading.
