The ul­ti­mate Span­ish tri­fecta in New York

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Taste -

CHEF broth­ers Fer­ran and Al­bert Adria will be mak­ing their Amer­i­can de­but in New York next year in a part­ner­ship with fel­low Spa­niard and star chef Jose Andres that will see the open­ing of a sprawl­ing Span­ish food hall.

It’s a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween three mighty culi­nary ti­tans that will bring the best of Span­ish cui­sine to New York in the form of a sprawl­ing 35,000sq ft space.

Set to open in late 2018, the in­door and out­door food hall will be lo­cated at the base of 10 Hud­son Yards and is pitched as “the ul­ti­mate gath­er­ing place cel­e­brat­ing all things Es­pana.”

10 Hud­son Yards is a 52-story of­fice tower in Man­hat­tan’s West Side, the first tower of the Hud­son Yards re­de­vel­op­ment pro­ject billed as “the new fu­ture of New York” that is ex­pected to con­sist of 16 sky­scrapers con­tain­ing more than 12,700,000sq ft (1,180,000m sq) of new of­fice, res­i­den­tial and retail space.

The all-day din­ing des­ti­na­tion sounds sim­i­lar in con­cept to Mario Batali’s Eataly fran­chise, Ital­ian mar­ket­places that fea­ture coun­ters, cafes, restau­rants and pur­vey­ors of gourmet Ital­ian del­i­ca­cies.

Sim­i­larly, guests at the Span­ish food hall will be able to tuck into ta­pas or wood-fired paella, and buy ev­ery­thing from Span­ish ja­mon and olive oils to wines and other as­sorted del­i­ca­cies.

“We have long wanted to find an of­fi­cial way to cre­ate magic with José, and now we have it and can’t think of a bet­ter way to de­but in Amer­ica,” said the Adria broth­ers in a state­ment.

Call­ing Fer­ran his men­tor, Andres said the pro­ject marks a dream come true for the chef, who has dreamed of open­ing a res­tau­rant in New York since he ar­rived in the United States at the age of 19.

“I can­not wait to tell the story of Spain to my adopted home of Amer­ica in this iconic new neigh­bor­hood,” he added.

Hud­son Yards is slated to be­come New York’s hottest new din­ing des­ti­na­tion. Along with the ul­ti­mate Span­ish tri­fecta, the area will also be home to new restau­rants from David Chang and Thomas Keller.

Lux­ury res­tau­rant group D&D Lon­don is like­wise set to open a mod­ern brasserie in the area, while other din­ing con­cepts in­clude a Greek seafood res­tau­rant from chef Costas Spil­iadis, and an Amer­i­can grill res­tau­rant from chef Michael Lomonaco. – AFP Re­laxnews

Pe­tit Crenn in San Fran­cisco, serv­ing a seafood-for­ward, fam­ily-style menu is in­spired by the chef’s mother, grand­mother and their home in Bri­tanny, the north­ern coast of France.

The one dish that has been on the Ate­lier Crenn menu since day one and has been given to ev­ery diner since: a Kir Bre­ton amuse bouche that is an aper­i­tif of ap­ple cider with crème de cas­sis, pre­sented as a lit­tle sphere.

By fram­ing sea urchin with liquorice on one side and yuzu on the other, Crenn says the dish draws on the com­plex­ity of French cui­sine and the del­i­cacy of Ja­panese cui­sine in a sim­ple and grat­i­fy­ing com­po­si­tion.
