Welcome back to 60 Second Tasting Menu, a fast-paced visual tour of stunning, elaborate, and technically advanced menus currently on offer across the city. This week, Anita Lo of the newly minted three-star West Village restaurant Annisa shows off her seven-course winter tasting menu. Said Times critic Pete Wells of Lo's cooking earlier this week, "What is remarkable about her food...is not exactly the absence of borders but the ease with which she crosses them." Turn up the volume, and see below for the full menu description.
