We're locals but we just tried Vers for the first time tonight and can say it is easily the best food we've had on Cape in 15 years.
We had a fascinating "garden salad" - Lettuces, Edible flowers, Quinoa, Cucumber, Shaved carrots, Radishes, Smoked almonds, Olive oil gel and powdered, Elderflower gel, Beet sorbet, Golden beet powder, & probably some other ingredients I forget.
The steak tartar was equally inventive, with Egg yolk, Pickled mustard seed, Rye toasts, Belgium ale, Chocolate, & other tastes.
For entrees, we had the lobster corn risotto (the only entree we felt was overpriced) and surf & turf, with Wheat berries, Rhubarb (foam, pickled, poached, & jam), poached Peaches, Roasted tomatoes, Green beans, summer squash, & Watercress.
Every ingredient was placed carefully in different areas of the plate so you could customize your bites. Truly no 2 bites were the same with these dishes!
But the coup de grace was the dessert. We were feeling adventurous, so we chose the Truth or Dare (either choose truth and choose a flavor or opt for dare and let the chef surprise you). We dared, and the chef came to our table, where he spread out a table-sized silicone mat and proceeded to explain each ingredient and why he chose it while laying it out in front of us. This week, grapes were the featured ingredient: 3 kinds of grapes sautéed in grape vinegar,
Frozen champagne grapes, Sunflower butter, candied oats and sunflower seeds candied, Rosemary infused goat cheese cubes, Rosemary foam, Lemon curd custard, Wine reduced to jelly, Kinako cake (soybean) with almond powder, & Mint leaves. Wow!
And the best part is that the menu is quite reasonably priced! In NYC or another big city, you'd be paying $1000 for this feast. Server knew her stuff - intimately familiar with plates and ingredients. Small place - only seats 20 - and yet we had no trouble getting a reservation a few days in advance. I kindof hate to be sharing this gem, because we'll probably have a harder time getting a table once word gets out about Vers!
