Chef Dominique Crenn of Luce and Daniel Hyatt of The Alembic came up with this unconventional concept of MINUTE/MINUIT (as in à la minute, and minute, as in tiny). The first one is this Sunday June 20th. And here’s the twist: it starts at midnight, to celebrate the kickoff of summer. The inaugural event will feature four courses of innovative dishes with pisco-based cocktails, and Crenn will be collaborating with chef Ted Fleury of The Alembic.

Here’s the delish-sounding menu: amuse: tomato water and pisco gelée shot/sea urchin/caviar. First course: a dish to enjoy the difference of temperature: hiramasa and coconut snow/mackerel “escabeche,” and soba/arctic char “duck fat,” pisco-impregnated watermelon, and Daniel’s pairing: pisco, matcha, fennel, jalapeño. Second course: abalone/oxtail/oxtail consommé/flowers, and Daniel’s pairing: pisco, cherry, red miso, chervil. Third course: squab/texture of summer strawberries, and Daniel’s pairing: pisco, rhubarb soda, BBQ spice. For dessert: apricot/peach and pisco vacherin/peach sorbet, and Daniel’s pairing: pisco, smoked black tea, lemon, wildflower honey, soy caramel, egg white. I know, god damn. It’s $50 (not including tax and tip), and since seating is extremely limited, be sure to reserve ahead of time via email, and Daniel will get back to you.
