Winterlicious - Annona

Garp | Jan 22, 2005 08:13 AM

Sometimes it's good to ignore the reviews and just go and give it a try... we made reservations for Annona at Park Hyatt who were willing to take Winterlicious reservations earlier (aka yesterday). We had reservations at 7:30 pm and arrived to a half-filled restaurant. The food was very decent: The amuse bouche was a slice of seared tuna on top of some kind of salsa. The duck confit and seafood bisque were nothing special but also not bad. The main was actually surprisingly large for a Winterlicious meal (the seabass was about the size of an stretched out hand, and there were 3 fist-size thick pieces of pork tenderloin). The desert was again quite large (our Maple creme brulee was larger than most creme brulee dishes I have seen, not as deep, but instead with more crusty surface, served alongside a tiny sugary edible cup with a few berries. The zucchini cake was a regular cake size, served with ice cream. We also got bitesize pieces of chocolate with our bill and weren't rushed out of the restaurant - the food arrived a bit slower than normal, so we were there until 10 pm. Total cost (without tips) came to about $191 for 4 people which included a drink and coffee / cappucino / espesso.

Overall a good restaurant experience that did not scream "Winterlicious".
