Every single dish at this restaurant is an exquisite work of art, including the potatoes and chard sofrito seen below. And eating at this place is akin to making a trip to a museum or art gallery -- except that each work of art is meant for you to consume and destroy with rapacious glee. As my dining companion remarked after a recent meal there: "It's like going on vacation." If your idea of vacation is to eat absolutely amazing food that you can't get anywhere else in a gorgeous setting with great wine, that is. (p.s.: That's totally my idea of a vacation.)
