MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Together with his co-owner and wife, Katrina Bravo, Chef Jenner Tomaska lays bare lofty ambitions at this airy atelier. The minimalist, well-lit space evokes an art gallery, complete with a high-concept tasting that's aimed at blurring the boundaries between art and dining.
The show begins with intriguing bites served at standing tables just inside. The multi-course meal that follows features a variety of dishes, each offered on custom pieces made by local artists. Flavorful compositions showcase unexpected combinations like a seared rouget fillet set atop a bean purée and shaved matsutake mushrooms. Accompanied by a bowl of beans in an Ibérico ham consommé studded with tender "pearls" of apple, the dish's sweetness works wonders against its savory essence.
