MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Though this veritable jewel box deserves to have its name trumpeted in the streets, it is the epitome of serenity, sophistication and subtlety. With fewer than two-dozen seats, the space feels intimate, as if the whole show has been crafted for your benefit. Co-chefs Sam Plotnick and Don Young worked together at Les Nomades, and here at Temporis they continue to flaunt their supreme talent and collaboration. Each dish is a personal expression of their passion, vision and a clear representation of their highly intellectualized approach to cooking. Custom tables featuring hydroponic sprouts that become part of your meal can also be found cradling such delicacies as escargot with a fermented sour cherry tomato. This then sets you on a course where you’ll be surprised and delighted at every turn. Salmon in an uni broth; capellini with lobster morsels; a paper-thin biscuit with cured Mangalista pork—it's a culinary show of one intoxicating dish after the next. Ruby-red venison in a Madeira reduction is the stuff of dreams and may be tailed by decadent foie gras ice cream. A chocolate tart is poured, then solidifies around a passion fruit-filled globe for a particularly dramatic final bow.
