      There is literally nothing else to say.

    2. I'm not sure if I wrote a full on story about our meal there. I'll look and if I find it, I'll post it here. The short version is my wife and I had the 12 course menu with the wine pairings at the beginning of June of this year and it was the single most memorable meal we've had. It was a truly remarkable experience. The restaurant itself is beautiful, the service is quite good (bordered on getting to be a bit too much, but never quite got to be too much) and the food is stunning in both presentation and taste. If you have the choice, I really couldn't recommend it highly enough. We can't wait for a chance to get back there.

      1. It's amazing. Transcendant. 12 is the way to go, the 24 course is overwhelming for a first go. Get the wine pairing and let go...
