MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Guests enter Métier via an elevator, which leads you into a moody lounge. With a fireplace and cookbook-lined shelves, this is a lovely stop for sips and snacks. One part living room and two parts art gallery, the dining room is a spare, sleek collection of cloth-robed tables and white walls with paintings here and there. This is one of those few remaining places where jackets are required, so gentlemen, don’t forget to don them!

The name, Métier, is defined as an area of expertise, and that proves true in the ambitious tasting menu, supplemented by "Menu Stories" that inform the diner of the chef's inspiration or thought process behind each creation. A riff on cassoulet, for instance, features flageolet bean purée nestling a crispy pork jowl croquette and Santa Barbara uni. The crowning flourish is a zesty sorbet made from aji dulce peppers grown at the restaurant's garden in Virginia. The hearty boudin noir-stuffed quail breast; and "tagliatelle" fashioned from celery root as well as Cognac- and foie gras-enriched jus are other delightful highlights.

A satin-smooth, double fermented chocolate ganache with toasted fennel-crème anglaise is as stunning as it is an ingenious finale.
