Creature Comforts @ Luma

Can anyone offer feedback on the Creature Comforts menu inspired by the Tim Burton exhibit being served at Luma?

I'm mostly wondering if the menu is just a witty play on words relating to elements of Burton's films or if the dishes themselves actually have a Burton - esque aesthetic to them plating/presentation wise.

    We went last night prior to catching the last show of Priscella.

    2 family members ordered off the menu, the Lasagna and Tuna respectively.

    No Burton influence, just a marketing ploy to get you in the seat. Both were received well.

    Though having to send a steak back 2X as they were unable to properly cook a 'Medium Rare' piece of meat was somewhat embarrassing, though handled well.

      Ah!!! Bummer!!!

      That would be so amazing if they incorporated his imagery into the plates. Too bad.

      Thanks for reporting back though, much appreciated. Sorry to hear of your steak, that's too bad, but nice that they handled it well.

        Though we were there for the show next door, I love Burton's work, and must go back to see the exhibit.

        Luckily my father enjoyed the frites they served with the steak to tide him over as they scrambled to find someone who knew how to cook a chunk of meat.

        Canteen (another O&B joint) below us, was packed - do they share kitchens?
