Luce at the Intercontinental

We celebrated my cousin's birthday at Luce, which had been recommended to us awhile ago by a friend. Our overall impression that the food was good, but the service was a bit spotty. Nothing was "wrong" exactly, but it just wasn't as polished as we expected. Still, it was nice that we were able to get a reservation at a late date and we had a good time.
amuse bouche - crab custard with uni foam (not quite enough crab flavor):

foie gras "chaud & froid" - quince, celery, walnuts, & honey-lavender brioche:

kampachi w/ trout roe & toasted buckwheat (I liked this one quite a bit):

seared scallop & abalone - pumpkin & duck consomme:

butter poached lobster - squash, sunflower shoots, lemon verbena (also very tasty):

slow cooked pork loin - parsnip, brussel sprouts, pickled mustard:

textures of dark chocolate & olive oil (birthday treat, fun to eat):

hazelnut financier, banana ice cream, gianduja cremeux, milk chocolate feuillentine (not as good as above):

strawberry & pineapple gelee:
