Described as French-Korean but not sure it can be easily pigeonholed as either. Mushroom canneloni with Chinese sausage were delicate and had just a touch of smokiness, the best of the dishes that we tried. Short rib was perfect although the chestnut and kimchi were not really integrated into the dish and the portion was a bit small. The shrimp inside the shrimp agnolotti w/ edamame cream was like a terrine in texture and lacked flavor definition, but made a nice amuse. Blackened squid was described in Asian terms but with the overtones of black bean and olive tapenaude seemed almost Mediterranean. Arctic char sashimi unexceptional, desserts need work. Spotted other hounds there (hlodesign, ling, others). Chairs a bit uncomfortable. Will return to try other dishes.
