Des Rosiers’s team has also put together even more tantalizing dishes such as Hand Cut Veal Carpaccio with whipped Korean garlic, chicken crackling, yuzu juice, Priorat olive oil, and cracked pepper ($12); Konro Grilled Shrimp & Cucumber made with Japanese sumi charcoal grilled shrimp, chilled cucumber, lime zest, and coconut Thai peanut vinaigrette ($11); and new House Made Sausage with Pinn Oak lamb, Jude Becker pork, polenta, raw shaved artichokes, and sake vinaigrette ($8).
