    how are you supposed to eat the first course? I'm assuming not from your knees in your parents' kitchen, right? And the prosciutto is there for more than just vanity?

    The fig dish at the top is unsettling

    That second dish is the one from Robuchon, right? It could use some work. The leeks are overcooked, dismal and there aren't enough of them. The fish should be nicely browned, and the sauce should be quite foamy. I imagine it still tasted good, though.

    That isn't the floor, it is the table.

    I'd need an emersion blender to make the sauce frothy, no?

    The fish didn't brown. I don't know why--too moist, maybe--and I didn't want to overcook it until it did form a crust.

    The next to last sounds odd, but is quite delicious. It is eggplant caviar, basically eggplant puree with a little curry and mint, covered with an avocado cream. The last is sea bream sitting on a little onion tart with a sauce made from tomato, butter and molasses. I'd never made the last one before, but I basically want to eat the sauce with everything now.

    FWIW, the first is a potato and almond soup, and the second is mezzaluna made with sliced potatoes for the outside and artichoke puree inside.

    I'd like to know what kind of fish this is, and what is in the foreground.

    Wow, completely unexpected--both the eggplant/avocado cream and the tomato, butter, and molasses sauce. Both are intriguing, but I *never* would've thought of the latter combination.

    That last dish looks so...odd. I can't put my finger on it. Maybe its the picture angle. Looks like a tree fell on top of it.

    way back when I worked in Tribeca, there was a restaurant that had a floor like such. I don't remember the name because it closed, but it was right near the Canal St. E train. Bar Artisanal or something.

    Matt, for someone who makes shit jokes about food. That looks like you took a steamer right on your plate. Completely unappetizing.
