The inventor of the famous ‘Cronut’, Dominique Ansel is at it again and this time he's come up with an ambitious eight-course tasting menu. The best part is that the courses are all desserts.
The menu is served to just eight lucky diners at a time, a few times a week, in the test space above Dominique Ansel Kitchen, called ‘U.P.’, which is short for “unlimited possibilities,” Dominique Ansel after-hours dessert-only tasting experience...
The menu’s theme is said to revolve around “firsts”: For example, for “first kiss”, Ansel served roasted peanut water and cream soda pearls. For “first heartbreak”, a version of baked Alaska with Valrhona Guanaja bitter almond ice cream was served with meringue.
The experience will cost $85 per person, with an additional $45 for drink pairings.
