a bit too upscale for my own personal taste; this is not a place that I would shell out my own cash to try out, and luckily i didn't have to. a family friend took us out for a celebration and celebrate we did.

we had the tasting menu which surprisingly seemed quite japanese. when we asked our waiter he told us that the chef was inspired by the Japanese belief of using the freshest ingredients (can't remember the Japanese term off my head)

starters:
spanish ham and bread

tasting menu:
sushi made with some seafood(?)
white asparagus jelly with caviar
shrimp ravioli with truffle
deep sea lobster pure with hokkaido sea urchin
udon with lobster bouillon
wagyu beef with white asparagus
sake jelly with fruit sorbet

wine
2 whites
2 reds

i'm not usually a fan of "inspired" fusion dining, but i found this dinner to be rather scrumptious. the ingredients were fresh, the service close to impeccable. i don't usually eat lobster or shrimp, so i don't feel qualified to comment on them. i enjoyed the wagyu beef the most, it was simply divine. my next favorite dish was the white asparagus jelly with caviar. it has a great texture, you can really taste the essence of the white asparagus. a bit of this mixed with some caviar with a sip of white burgundy was an amazing experience.

with regards to the "value". in terms of pure dollar for food it's low. the overall dinner came to be...A LOT. so for a place like this i need to judge it relative to a special occasion situation.
