My two companions and I had the five course winter tasting menu at MK last evening. A full spectrum of rich flavors and textures: chicken liver dumpling, califlower soup w/salmon roe, skate wing in brown butter, squab nesting in a chestnut puree, and pumkin cake w/sage ice cream in a wash of mustard seed dressing-the most unusual. I purposefully wanted to extend my eating experience outside the realm of healthy, non-dairy, no meat or ever desert routine. I reviewed the menu after the first course.
Never would I have chosen such an array of richly prepared food loaded with calories and fat. My eating experience superseeded the food and service. My brother was shocked to see me eat without reservation or guilt. This is what dining out is to be and for too long I forgot this pleasure. One complaint, coffee and tea was an extra charge- makes no sense.
