Dining at Aria, recommended by Ita!
I ordered a 3 course, my entree will be;
cured New Zealand salmon with kombu and Earl Grey tea,
yuzu tapioca and avocado purée
braised beef cheek with red onion choucroute, roasted chestnuts and
puffed wild rice
Good, flavorful, tender, and juicy.
It will be great if it is not that salty, and this is coming from someone who loves salty food.
roasted rump with ricotta gnocchi, pumpkin and mustard fruit purée and
a sage and balsamic sauce
This is great, tender, juicy, flavorful BUT
The overall combo of the meat, veg, and sauce compliments each other.
mandarin panna cotta with sauternes, mandarin and a burnt butter ice cream
Pretty decent, but not awesome.
Some sweets for the post meal.
To sum up my Aria 3 course pre-theater experiernce will be decent, but doubt I will return for a second trip.
Unless I'm itching for the lamb and the souffle (didn't take the photo).
Because Quay beats Aria hands down even at a much higher cost. (wait for day 7 for my Quay experience!)
