MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Bad Hunter is a wildly popular and exciting destination on this hip restaurant row. The sun-filled interior is light and sleek, with a soothing décor of whitewashed brick walls, caramel-hued banquettes and lush greenery to ensure that the space feels airy and never overcrowded. Servers deftly manage the room, no matter how many orders are rushing in. The cooking unveils an inventive take on seasonal farm-to-table dining, with wood-fire roasting and fermentation playing large parts. Start with fluke crudo in tangy carrot-citronette. Then move on to saffron farfalle dressed with an ingenious root vegetable “Bolognese” so good that no one misses the meat. Desserts are another highlight, especially the caramelized white chocolate and parsnip panna cotta.
