Noma: Game & Forest – Denmark

🇩🇰 | Copenhagen | 11.22.2018

‘Never stop pushing’

Noma is probably, currently, the restaurant that is pushing the envelope the most right now in the culinary world.

Their current ‘Game & Forest’ menu is as daring and seductive as it comes. Get ready to try and learn about new flavors and preparations you probably did not think were possible. Dishes are work of art and plenty of interaction with the food ahead of you.

Reindeer feast from the tongue to the heart with a sauce enhanced by citrus ants. One the best caviar dishes this year. Duck in ways I have never imagined. Duck feet for dessert. These and more are some of the wonderful surprises this menu has to offer.

Be ready to think and get out of your comfort zone. Bring an open mind, because Noma is daring to do things no one else is.

Modern Mexican in a warm and relax environment were service is efficient as it is informative. ‘Cobia al Pastor’ was wow for everyone at the table, ‘Duck Carnitas’ is always a must, and the ‘Husk Meringue’ is probably one of the most complex and perfect desserts out there. Mezcal section is strong with very rare bottles. Seat at the bar or dining room. It is always fun and delicious.

Per Se ***

Per Se – NYC – 11.4.2018

No secret that Per Se is one of my favorite restaurants in the USA and the world. The execution of food and service is with the most precise detail and the hospitality is felt since the moment we walk through those magical blue doors.

A tasting menu that starts with the ‘must have’ classic suspects as the perfect bites of the ‘Salmon Cornet’ and the luxurious ‘Oysters & Pearls’ which is one of the most perfected dishes in the world. Seasonality makes its presence with its unctuous ‘Pumpkin Velouté with white truffles’, perfect pieces of seafood where ‘Hawaiian Abalone’ is prepared to perfection. A ‘Foie Gras’ due shows off culinary skills as well as the perfect piece of ‘Pigeon’ & ‘Venison’.

One of the most complete and rounded restaurants are in the world. Worth a visit at any time of the year. But is always extra special when is white truffle season.
