It had been about 5 months since my last visit. In that time, the restaurant debuted on the Michelin list with two stars, and they were nominated for a James Beard award for best new restaurant. I made sure to plan in advance so that I could secure a reservation, as I wasn’t sure how difficult it might be to reserve a slot on a weekend. Since I like the counter seating, I took a first-seating reservation on a Friday night.
The menu ended up to be mostly different, with a few dishes carried over from the fall menu. One thing that was very different from all the times I have dined at Sous Rising/42 grams was the absence of the snack chips to start off the meal. There was still a centerpiece at each station, but nothing to nibble on.
The meal started with a small dish of familiar flavors. This was inspired by vichyssoise with textural twists. The fried crispy potatoes, caviar and chervil were set on a thick small serving of potato cream. There was a lot going on with this small bite to start waking up the palate.
