Yet another play with your brain move by me, It is in fact not plum... sort of. Instead of using plums i use pluots because they are far more flavorful and interesting. But there are so many different kinds. The ones roz had were called flavor queens, and the ones last night were called golden dino eggs. I just say plum so people dont get scared by pluots.

Alas however last night and tonight will be the last days of the santos menu at griffou. The restaurant and its investors want to go in a different direction. One that i dont really fit into. So we have decided to part ways.

The issue was a topic at our service meetings and managers were made aware. I spoke with the server and handled that end of it as well. Please let me know if i can do anything else and hopefully you will be back soon.

It will start at 8 but other times will work if need be. A pairing will be seperate since this dinner is 8 courses rather then 5.

Thank you for the great photos. I will look into the bread thing. There must have been a hiccup with service because they usually offer bread. As to portion sizes i actually shortened the menu because people were saying it was to much food more often then not. But this was a tasting menu and the ingredients are specially sourced and quite expensive. Many a guests has said our regular menu portions are very generous.

We actually put the tasting on hold for the summer. We didnt want it to compete with the gilt city offer we are doing. But in september the chefs tasting will be back in full force. But i do a special tasting once a month that allows me to express a certain topic or ingredient. Thats what this past wednesday was.

If someone were to just want the food. Id be happy split off the two. It would be 50 for food and 25 for the beer. Will try to get some more stuff up on the website if i can.

Hotel Griffou - Sunday Portuguese Brunch

well its more lunch then brunch to tell you the truth. We dont eat the americanized items for breakfast. The pain perdu is a version of what we eat. The menu is true to form on what we would eat on a sunday afternoon.
