Tasting Counter

Delightful food and a refreshing look behind the scenes in the kitchen

A peak behind the curtain through Tasting Counter's open-kitchen culinary theater

Love it for its...

Intimate setting

Unique approach to high-end dining, with bar-style seating facing the kitchen

Delectable food and beautiful plating

Interesting, well-crafted beverage pairings

But it's also...

Hard to hold a conversation seated at the bar

Timed such that there isn't much time to sit around after dinner if you are part of the first seating (as the second seating starts promptly thereafter)

A bit pricey for a regular night out
