So I finally made it out to Spago. From what I've read on Chowhound, it seems like the consensus is that while ordering à la carte is nothing special, the tasting menu is divine. I am happy to report that the tasting menu did not disappoint. In fact it was one of the best meals I've had in recent memory.

The menu in brief:

Amuse Bouche 1: Spicy Tuna Tartare in a Sesame-Miso Cone
Amuse Bouche 2: House-Smoked Salmon on a Lemon-Herb Blini
Amuse Bouche 3: Hamachi Ceviche
Amuse Bouche 4: Osetra Caviar Tart
Amuse Bouche 5: Bacon Confit En Croute
Intermezzo: Cucumber Sorbet
1: Maryland Crab Duo
2: Sautéed White Asparagus
3: Pan-Roasted Alaskan White Salmon
4: English Pea and Mascarpone Agnolotti
5: Rabbit Duo
6: Lacquered Carpenter Ranch Squab
Supplement: Grilled NY Steak of 100% Japanese Wagyu Beef
7: Cheese
8: Chocolate and Hazelnut Tart
