We have no rules about the menu—that makes cooking great fun.
A new star on the menu, long-boned Kurobuta pork chops, arrives from Idaho’s Snake River Farms by way of Japan. Diners will go hog wild for this heritage breed of black pigs raised to the meticulous standards of Japanese tradition. Unlike typical American pigs, these pedigree porkers produce rosy-hued meat that’s beautifully marbled for tender juiciness—and boast exceptional flavor. “It’s like eating something completely different,” says Christopher Heath, Corporate Chef of Paxos Restaurants, who seeks out high-quality purveyors of meat and seafood.
Fine wines are a focal point here, providing ample pairing choices by the glass or bottle.
SCOOP IT UP
Shareable sides go from homey Crab Mac ’n’ Cheese to Roasted Root Vegetable Ratatouille. However, our candidate for the most luxurious entrée accompaniment is Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes enriched with chunks of Maine lobster.
An eclectic ambiance fits the restaurant’s eclectic menu. From the bold décor of the dining room to the expansive lounge featuring an artful fireplace and a glass-walled wine room, a near-electric air of cool panache pervades. A more casual, though no less dramatic, barn-roof covered patio—with a fire pit and heaters—attracts throngs of al fresco fans at the first hint of spring.
