A few special menus for you to take note of, starting with the second installment of chef Eddie Lau’s ~DUX~ at ~THE SUMMIT~. The next menu will be an homage to summer ingredients, seven courses in all, for $70. Upcoming dates are Sunday July 31st, August 7th, August 14th, August 21st, and August 28th. Check out the menu and make your reservation here.
Attention K-Mart shoppers: now through the end of August, ~JARDINIÈRE~ has introduced La Lumière Bleue Spéciale, a special and limited dish for $25 that isn’t listed on the menu. Tuesday is porchetta , Wednesday is fried chicken , Thursday is cassoulet , Friday is cioppino, Saturday is prime rib (want!) , and Sunday is pork chops. Come early and tell your server you saw this online.
And on the morning of Sunday August 7th, pastry chef Belinda Leong (AQUA, Gary Danko, Pierre Hermé, Manresa) will open a pastry pop-up shop at ~FLOUR + WATER~ from 9am-noon. She will be introducing her new line of pastries, which includes unusual items like bostock (twice-baked, soaked brioche with almond frangipane and passion fruit), and kugelhopf (a specialty from Alsace, France, a yeasted dough with raisins and almonds), plus simpler items like coffee cake and bacon-cheddar-chive scones. Guests can eat in or take food/beverages to go.
