Mr. T and I were two of only eight lucky people to score opening night reservations for Dominique Ansel's dessert only tasting menu Unlimited Possibilities (aka U.P.). The tiny space above Dominique Ansel Kitchen was transformed into a cozy candlelit space with jazz music playing overhead and table that descended from the ceiling for us to dine (check out his table descending video here).
The meal began with an array of fresh veggies, a little something raw to cleanse the palate for the desserts to come.
The eight course tasting menu was designed around the "first" of everything in life. Dominique explained that he not only wanted to focus on the flavors but also recreate the emotions that went along with each of these experiences. A week before dining each guest received an email asking to reply with his/her first word and course number one was designed around each response.
First Word- sweet pea, rice milk, gin, carrot cake, yogurt meringue
