Just another quick pictorial. Can’t begin to transcribe all the darling flowers pinned on the table, but an incomplete list follows: (left) cucumber flower, dill stalk, baby (red, green, yellow) tomatoes, etc. (right) arugula flower, haricot vert, cucumber, red leaf lettuce etc.
The edgy serving platform – one’s obviously a floral pin frog – is Alinea-esque, tho the greens were not anti-griddled, nor cooked, in any way, save for a few sprinkles of sea salt or a few dabs of olive oil. Diners are subliminally instructed to eat with paws by the lack of silverware during the amuse courses. Evocative of picking from the garden perhaps?
