Wildebeest

January 6, 2014



Poutine, pork jowl & bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup - 2+

J's comment > loved the pork jowl, a little less fat would be perfect. Poutine OK.


Milk-poached veal neck, smoked ricotta cheese, kabocha squash, toasted pumpkin seeds - 2

J's comment > surprisingly marbly, texture similar to the pork jowl, but much firmer and denser.


Cotechino sausage, clam vinaigrette - 2

J's comment > tad salty, but a good sausage, dense yet juicy


Smoked bone marrow butter, bread - 2

J's comment > didn't really taste the marrow, butter was very nicely whipped, but it just tasted smoky and salty


Wildebeest 'Cheesecake', quince sorbet, crumble - 2+

J's comment > a really tasty treat. The 'cheesecake' (trust me, the quotation marks are totally appropriate), is actually whipped foam, and has a bubbly-melt-in-your-mouth feel. Like an Aero bubble bar, but of course much much MUCH better. The quince sorbet had a creamy consistency that was closer to a dense gelato. A most unusual dessert.


49E: Bourbon, Orange Vermouth, Saffron Aperitivo, Cardamom - 2
