Chez Seino SAY YES !!!
A single daily menu, pure gastronomy, Franco Japanese. Fabulous value, feel the ZAP of REAL FRESH FOOD!
5 courses @51. To start pop-in-the-mouth morsels of teryaki sauce Salmon, egg flan and a great fat sea-shell (whelk) downed with a glass of saké (on the house).
Next come morsels of ham-on-the-bone freshly cooked in herbs and sea-weed accompanied by celeriac and turnip delicately topped with a few drops of miso sauce ... yummy, Followed by (and we switch now to plate-size portions) ... here comes the KILLER:
Halibot filet on a bed of alfalfa with scalions, tiny Japanese mushrooms (name?), slivers of bacon, fish done to a TURN your palate left fresh and tingling. HEAVENLY, my mouth waters at the memory ... At this point I felt I had eaten enough ... but wait : dishes proudly held aloft ... the waiter sweept in bearing the plat de resistance ... pheasant (the season has just begun, evidence = signs of buckshot) with sauté veg al denté :turnip, chicons, baby carrots, sprouts ... the bird's flesh tooth tender, neither rosé nor overdone : OH MAGIC MOMENT!
Force me to decide my preference it would be for the halibut, a rare luxury to find in a restaurant.
There is one place (fusion, don't you just HATE the word!) in town boasting gastronomy pomp and fuss, but chez SEINO it is the very UNDERSTATEMENT that enhances the magic. They will get a star ... I'm prepared to bet on it. Drop what you are doing, get up and GO! It is SUPERlative.
