Head chef Steve Allen wears his heart on his plates and is a ded­i­cated sto­ry­teller; the nar­ra­tives and in­spi­ra­tions be­hind ev­ery course are pre­sented in a lit­tle en­ve­lope of notes. Au courant in both taste and plat­ing, dishes such as Pollen’s Salad and Sea & Sand are highly mem­o­rable. The cherry is a mo­tif that kicks off and con­cludes the meal: the amuse-bouche serv­ings in­clude liver pâté en­cased in a beet­root jelly in the shape of the cherry, and the meal ends with a fresh cherry salad un­der a cherry par­fait frozen in ni­tro­gen. A lot of thought goes into the drinks menu, too—the wine list is ex­ten­sive, as is the mock­tail se­lec­tion.
