60 Second Tasting Menu: Atera, Spring 2014

New, 4 comments

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. Of all the tasting menus featured so far in this series, Atera's is the by far the longest, a succession of 24 small bites and plates, beginning with toasted grain broth and culminating in four desserts and mignardise. In between there is lobster. There is caviar. There is sea urchin. And at 46 seconds in, there is a most beautiful specimen of duck. Turn up the volume, and see below for the full menu description.
