Michael Mina

Last weekend we went to try out the Restaurant Michael Mina, inside of the Westin St. Francis. The three-course prix fixe was a pricey $88, but included a lobster-themed amuse bouche in addition to three elaborate dishes and a couple of chocolate bonbons.

Each course had a central ingredient, but included three different preparations of that ingredient. I chose the crab ravioli, a veal dish, and a trio of citrus desserts:

All of the food was good, if occasionally a little intense in flavor, and of course the dining room was gorgeous and the service impeccable. I especially enjoyed the citrus trio, which paired tiny lime, lemon, and orange desserts with soft sorbets of matching flavors.
