The tasting menu will begin with a greeting from our host McKenzie, a glass of sangria, and a sophisticated table set with Brined and Roasted Rosemary-Chile Almonds & Candied Peppered Walnuts. The first plate will consist of a classic Italian Mushroom Risotto topped with a nest of sautéed mushrooms and shaved parmesan. Next, we will enjoy a Middle Eastern plate of Lamb Kofte served with Hummus, Muhammara, and a wedge of pita. The menu takes a spicy turn from here so we will serve a short citrus sorbet intermezzo, and our host will prepare a traditional Cuban Mojito with fresh lime and muddled mint. The mojito pairs quite well with the Vietnamese Pork Banh Mi that is served next. The Banh Mi is presented on a French baguette and stuffed with pickled carrots and peppers, fresh herbs, and sprouts. The final dish is Cajun-inspired Fried Shrimp served on a plate of pepper jelly and topped with pickled red onion and fresh fried herbs, and is as visually appealing as it is delicious. Finally, we will serve a glass of Summer Corn Gelato which is studded with a shard of Jalapeno Glass, a dessert that can be found nowhere else and could not possibly disappoint.
