Melisse 5x5 Chefs' Collaborative Dinner - Perceptor's Report

Whoops, you are right, I meant the venison, not the veal! (side note: had the mkt menu veal at Providence a few weeks back, which was AMAZING). I loved LeFebvres' rabbit dish from the 1st 5x5, but found his venison at this one to be a little too earthy for me on its own. I thought Brian's pairing w/ the Verite was a perfect foil, though. Happy eating!

Melisse 5x5 Chefs' Collaborative Dinner - Perceptor's Report

yes, thanks for the shot! where were you sitting? great report. I thought Chef Manzke's dish needed an R-rating, that egg yolk was so amazing with the suckling pig...Mom loved the veal the best, while Dad was a huge fan of Chef Cimarusti's salmon. Was great to see him on Iron Chef the night before vs. Morimoto!
