A new menu at Saison. This time they thought to get rid of cutlery and forced the diner to eat (mostly) with their hands. I am not a great fan of this new fashion taking over the fine dining scene. I do get the notion of having the additional sensory experience of eating with your hands, but it usually leaves your hand sticky and not feeling nice. If they really want to do this, they would have to serve at a minimum a hot towel after every single course in order to the diner to be able to clean their hands, Just look to Japan and you know what I mean.
The meal itself was very good, as expected. Some of the slightly changed classics did the job (sea urchin). The antelope as the meat course was outstanding, tender and moist but with a very distinct taste which made it special. The peas as good as it gets.
I am looking forward to go there in December, but this time I might bring my own tools :)
