Mosaic Grille @ the Hyatt

February 22, 2014

Sous vide peace country lamb w broccoli rabe, butternut squash, spiced walnuts - 3

J's comment > so juicy! reminded me of Secret Location's triple seared musk ox; hard to pick a fav between the two, but I'm slightly leaning towards Secret Location

Seared Baja ocean wise scallops w sweet potato, figs & prosciutto - 2+

J's comment > scallops cooked well, but not as good as Secret Location's triple seared scallops (you can see the difference in color); flavors well balanced, esp the fig which can tend to be slightly too sweet sometimes

A la minute smoked skuna bay salmon w kale nori, wasabi cauliflower puree - 2+

J's comment > much smokier this time and salmon wasn't stringy in the least; just a tad salty though, otherwise, simply beautiful.

Complimentary biscuits & butter - 2+

Mosaic chocolate cake - 2

J's comment > not bad, but I still don't get why this is their 'signature'

Pumpkin & nutmeg creme brulee - 2

J's comment > really interesting texture of the pumpkin custard; it's not quite custardy, leaning more towards a soft sponge cake, but not quite there either. I think pumpkin fans would love this.

Macchiato (complimentary) - 2


Mosaic Bar & Grille on Urbanspoon

Extra Note
We made sure to call ahead to ensure that Chef Thomas was in the house before dining here (see Dec 21, 2013 post below for reason why), and sure enough, quality definitely bounced back up. Executive Sous Chef Jo Ong even stopped by our table to ensure that quality was up to par, which it was.

We had a VanEats pass for this.
