17 Courses and Counting!
When I began my Underground Dining my intention was a ten course tasting menu but it never quite made it to ten, it was always a solid twelve. Then as time went on it grew to 14, 15...And as menu 3 hit I began to get those "staple," "money" dishes that guests raved about like shrimp noodle scampi, the mushroom tea course, and white truffle Yukon gold potato pierogi and I haven't been able to part with them. The summer menu is currently 17 courses and this month of August there may even be 18 on the occasional lucky night. I have a new fun plating technique which is in the works and lands right on the guest's hand that I hope to incorporate as one of the first courses when One Sister becomes above ground at Elizabeth Restaurant. Remember that name, cause that will be her!
