Coi Review

Hungryfina | Jun 25, 2006 03:01 AM

Last week I finally made a trip out to Coi to see if Daniel Patterson actually had anything new to offer the bay area. The service was definitely first class, I never felt ignored or overly interupted. The decor was modern and mostly decorated in muted earth tones but was kept interesting with a variety of textures. I was bothered a little bit by the lack of windows, but the lighting was warm enough that it wasn't too cave-like and the food quickly distracted me.
My table had the tasting menu with a couple of alterations (no sweet bread ravioli and we all had different desserts), and overall I found the food to be slighly contrived but all the same pretty delicious. My favorites were the pea soup with ricotta sorbet, the cracked wheat risotto with fava beans and morels, and the cherry confit. The only things I really didn't like were the beet carpaccio and the fourme d’ambert ice milk.
