60 Second Tasting Menu: Dovetail, Spring 2014

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. In celebration of spring, today's tasting menu is the all vegetable menu at John Fraser's Upper West Side restaurant Dovetail. Instead of a stream of foie gras, caviar, and a roasted animal, instead Fraser offers mushrooms, turnips, carrots, asparagus, and a stunning banana dessert. Turn up the volume, and see below for the full menu description.
