We dined at XO this Friday Oct 9th,8PM

I Started off with a beef tartare: small rectangularish artfully presented tartare, amazingly fully flavoured,
topped by a poached quail egg , cute little leaves of baby arugula.
This tartare is one of the top best I ever had in a city..where god knows…tartare is so popular: as far as taste, freshness, complexity of execution and supreme well balanced flavors go, this was simply impeccable. That truffle mayo master taste behind this tartare was simply heavenly to my tastebuds!

My Main course consisted of their “Free form lasagna”, this dish — I predict — will quickly become (whether he wants it or not) the signature dish of their chef: although, at first glance, it might not look like your typical lasagna… it is packed with all technical goodies of a lasagne: cheese, pasta and so on. But this is a unique high end different and creative version of the lasagna → it’s more of a “deconstructive” version of it: from the small chunks of lobster, braided sweetbreads, enjoyable lobster emulsion, fresh tender baby spinash and oh so lovely stracchino cheese….
every little element of that dish was a blast in terms of taste. Impeccably delicious.
