Ordering way off the menu. Major props to Myers and Chang!

My SO is a raw foodist. Other then Grezzo (awesome food by the way) we usually have to call a week or so ahead and request one raw food dish. Chef Matt at Myers and Chang did an absolutely amazing job. I spoke to the hostess on Tuesday, He called me Friday, did the online menu research, prepped it on Saturday and served us on Sunday while the rest of us ordered of the menu. Fresh rolls using mandolined cucumber as the skin, an asparagus salad with marinated goji berries. He even wrote out a little description for the server to present. The tigwers tears, banh mi and pork belly buns rocked as well. Some rawist friends of my so suggest giving the waiter a note explaining the dietary restrictions. But as a chef myself (I know you other ch'ers dont like my restaurant, but the longer we have been open the more apparent that North Station is a culinary wasteland anyway and we have dumbed down the menu and done some cost cutting measures that if the economy were better would make me look elsewhere for work.) I know that sendingh a note to the kitchen through a server when you arrive will get you very little special food. However a rock star like Chef Matt took the challenge, researched and actually put out food that rivaled Pure Food and Wine in NYC and Grezzo here, and he did it with a kitchen not designed for raw food. Anyway, much thanks to M and C, and we have another dinner next Saturday with parent/uncle types and if anyone can recommend another place tpo try this I am listening.
