Luksus @ Torst is incredible

Okay, first thing I'll say is I don't know how they are creating this menu for the price they charge ($75) and still making any profit. Had a couple beers at Torst to start and wait for restaurant to open, had to ask how we get in because it's completely seperated from the bar but a closed pocket door. It's a great little space, nice and bright, stark in a nice way, very Danish in it's sensability. Since it is a set menu all we really needed to do was decide on beer, we choose to go with the pairing because they know their food and beer combos better then I do. Started with some snacks of grilled carrots and beets,Sea urchin foam and seaweed crakers, and these incredible ham crackers with vinegar powder, it was crazy how it got my tastebuds going. These were followed by a roasted lettuce with mushroom, pea broth, and egg yolk, bust that egg up and magic happens, then came a raw razor clams with bone marrow, radish, and cucumber vinaigrette, followed by the best dish of the evening, a lamb breast with toungue salad (unbelieveably good, really), finished up with a rhubarb dessert.

Service was great even though there are only two waitstaff (the Chef and Sous occassionally ran courses to our table) and they were doing a great food of answering questions and explaining the dishes.

A very fun and completely satisfying experience.

Hope to get back soon
