A meal at Saison is a slow burn through the night. Flavors are clean and light. A soft salinity brushes some plates like an ocean mist. Smoke wafts throughout. Imparts of faint bitterness. Tight concentrations of umami. Sometimes a funk. And always the striking dash of herbs. The fire is the heart, the essence and purpose. Singularity.

Follow the embers to the wild and the pure.

The wild creeps in, maybe mistaken for decoration, with an Emersonian edge. Bitter flowers jabbed at the silkiness of a warm chawanmushi custard with tender sweet peas. A bowl of crudites, both farmed and foraged, sparkled in their clarity. Where are the anchovy dew drops in the Laguiole morning mist? And where was the soil? Old Beef, Old Tuna,1 but just as importantly, Pungent Herbs, stand against the age. Wild fennel lent a fleeting sweetness to nettles and Montana golden trout. Small vibrant hues as foils for the naturally sweet and rich.

Don't say I've never given you anything.

I feel like that's not enough.

I fully endorse both the original post as well as the tangents of this thread.

Have any of you heard of or tried the coffee from House of Coffee Beans in Houston? They roast and sell the best coffee I've ever tasted, FWIW, and have flown under the radar for decades now. The prices are great but if you take into consideration the quality of the beans then it's pushed into the realm of incredible.

By not hiring a consultant to come up with a brilliant coffee store name like Third Rail, Ritual, Handsome, Stumptown etc, they were able to save a ton and pass the savings on to you!
