I can't believe our dinner experience tonight.
After having been to Hatfield's, Melisse, Providence, Spago, Sushi Gen, etc, in the last couple of weeks we were hoping to take a break, not so fast!
We were heading to Angelini but the Toyota Bentley "lexus" turned S.
I've been reading about Opus and the new chef which we know from OC's Aubergine and Meson G so we decided to give it a try?
OMG! Six courses 60- ,impossible!
Everything was amazing and the restaurant can use and deserves the support! Chef Joseph came out several times to explain the courses and WOW! Here goes:
a. Corn Poppers(meson g)
b. Sashimi of Yellowtail w/bacon, hojiso, shio konbu, hokki clam.
c. Tempura Softshell Crab w/chilled Crab and farm fresh tomato salad, corn pudding.
d. Engish Pea Soup with Pork Belly-ABALONE combo, meyer lemon sorbet.
e. Ajii(japanese mini Mackerel)w/grilled hearts of palms, gooseberry gastrique
f. Braised Short Rib w/ Crispy Sweetbread, cream of wheat, bearnaise.
g. Lemon Verbena Milkshake, tonburi, grapenuts
h. Simple Chocolate Cake, fig jam , long pepper ice cream.
THIS T MENU SHOULD BE 100- or more. It's a bargain for 60- and the portions are large. Everything was very good.
Russ, you had me at Corn Poppers. Opus just went to the top of the list - THANK you for the rec!
Opus was spectacular! The restaurant is stunning and the service was top notch. The food was absolutely delicious. I would recommend this restauant to anyone who enjoys fine dining and a beautiful atmosphere. Oh, and it's a killer date place as well. I can't wait to go back.
