Amy ordered the Mugi Miso Red Snapper Romaine Lettuce, Couscous, Boiled Peanuts, Cauliflower Purée $27. This dish was very good, if you haven't ever had grilled lettuce - you should try it out. Much milder in flavor profiles compared to my dish, but a solid and and fun dish.
I went with the Goan Brook Trout Vindaloo Eggplant, Potatoes, Almond Ricotta, Banyuls Gastrique $26. This dish was a work of art. I assumed based off my knowledge of Indian food (Vindaloo = spicy), it might be a spicy dish but it wasn't. The flavors were complex but tended toward sour and tangy because of the gastrique while the ricotta added a creaminess to the dish that rounded everything out. I really enjoyed the flavors and originality of this dish - it was unlike any other fish dish I have had before.
