If you are not a huge fan of super small and weird meals, this is not the right place for you. Our 4 dish meal included 4 super small dishes, all too weird to actuallt enjoy them.

I had to admit that when I first heard about their "Journey" tasting menu, I thought the name a bit pretentious. But it's only pretension if they can't deliver, and at this point I can only say that it was truly an incredible experiential journey....More
