2nd lunch during the pre-opening phase. Some different dishes, some changed ones based on the feedback from the first lunch.
The food grass was served slightly warmer which made the texture melting and released more flavor on the palate. The shamo is a variation from a dish from Hongkong, but now a chicken from Hokkaido (Shamo is an overall designation for gamefowl in Japan. There are seven recognised breeds of Shamo chicken in Japan, all of which are designated Natural Monuments of Japan). It is served at room temperature with a wonderful sauce which one can spoon off.
Chef Calvert is one of the best bread baker around. His Okinawa sourdough bread gets served one slice at the time and always ordered on demand to make sure it comes warm. One needs to exercise maximum restraint in order not to completely stuff oneself with the most delicious bread.
