Had some pretty good sushi (nigiri sampler and a spicy tuna maki) for my birthday at a place called Lazy Fish in Frederick MD. Also Sapporo and cloudy sake. Good meal

I'd enjoy a full review of this one.

the service and setting are top notch, of course. it's formal but relaxed, which is very chicago. the staff absolutely knows what they're doing and treat you like royalty, but are still warm, talkative, and down to earth. it never feels stuffy.

the menu is posted on a card with vague words or phrases for each course like smoke, bone, crumpled paper. we did the split wine pairing since it was a school night, sharing a glass each course, and it was plenty. best courses were probably the dehydrated scallop paper, rehydrated in a sweet corn broth, or the thai course, with shellfish in a coconut broth sitting atop a bed of lemongrass for some serious aromatics. dessert was called nostalgia, consisting of a chilled, bubble gum flavored dish and an edible helium balloon made from banana taffy.

it is more of an intellectual experience than a traditional meal experience, if that makes sense. i made sure to smell every dish before eating it, and the flavor pairings/confusion/delivery methods get you thinking. passion fruit with fish roe or macadamia nut gel, for instance.

i get what chris is saying; glad i went but no huge urge to return anytime soon. while the courses are mostly small, we were plenty full towards the end and certainly after, so i guess chris is just a fattie.

as a lover of food and flavors, trag, i think you would love it. the price point is painful, but it's absolutely a unique experience.

This place is doing takeaway meals for $35. Will be looking into this weekend.

Did this tonight, worth it. Coq au vin, mashed potatoes, roll, and salad. Pot de creme for dessert. Elevated comfort food.
