Unique Uni Experience at Marea

guttergourmet | Nov 2, 2009 11:31 AM

I love uni. The uni panini at El Quinto Pino is nothing less than orgasmic.
The uni at Soto is perfection.
The soba uni ikura at Soba Koh is a religious experience
only rivaled by the soba uni at 15 East (and previously at Honmura An)
However, I have a new love: the ricci (uni) on a perfecly toasted crostini draped with a transluscent blanket of lardo and a sprinkliing of sea salt at Marea. The fatty pork after taste melds perfectly with the oceanic breeze of the urchin. In lieu of a casket, I want to be buried on a six foot long piece of toast with a mattress of uni tucked snugly under a salted see through comforter of lardo.
