My Take:

Each of the courses were well presented and each had wonderful flavours. My favourite dishes were the Fennel Pollen and clay pepper crusted ahi tuna, berkshire pork jowl, house chorizo ragu; Butter poached Lobster, 24k leaf with acadian caviar, acquerello risotto; Sezmu Beef duo, 72 hour shortrib, roasted tenderloin, smoked hollandaise; Blood orange nitro ice cream hand-made table side was quite the experience and was a refreshing dessert and the White Chocolate Truffles.
