My first visit to Saison was almost a year ago. I decided I needed to pay another visit soon after they reopened in a new location with a new format (hence the version 2.0). I was really looking forward to the meal as my past visit was one of my favorite food experiences. Last time, I had signed up for the Chef’s Counter experience, which was about 22 courses with wine pairings. For this visit, there was just one menu option (although you can eat at the bar with an abbreviated menu) with a choice of taking the wine parings or not.
The new space is very open, with a large open kitchen, high ceilings and original brickwork. They only seat 18 for dinner, although it is done in shifts.
When I arrived, they were not ready to seat me yet, so I sat in the bar and looked at the drink offerings. There were separate menus for wine and for specialty cocktails.
