Son of a Gun with Ludo
Taro and I go out for quick bites, but not for longer dinners like before. So it was definitely nice to get together with some friends for a special, unforgettable meal at Son of a Gun. Since the ban on foie gras takes into effect on July 1st, Son of a Gun worked with Ludo in order to create a 6-course menu showcasing foie gras. To say that it was amazing is an understatement. There were creative dishes plated beautifully, a balance with wine pairings – and delicious cocktail pairings, especially that one yuzu-inspired one -, great service, and wonderful company! If I am going to spend a night away from Emi, this is how I want to do it.
Foie Gras Chantilly, Crab, Radish Gelee, Tasco May, Lime (Ludo).
This was definitely my favorite dish! Jerk Foie Terrine, Smoked Salmon Roe, Blueberry, Pancakes, Maple Cream (Son of a Gun).
Poached-Roasted Foie Gras, Blue Fin Tuna, Rhubarb, Strawberry (Ludo) and “Eel & Avocado Roll”: Smoked Foie Gras, Carolina Gold Rice (Son of a Gun).
Taro said this dish smelled like Japan. When I closed my eyes, it brought me back to the splendid cherry blossoms. I love how food can bring upon and create memories. Dashi Braised Foie Gras, Tokyo Turnips, Roasted Carrot, Favas, Uni (Son of a Gun).
Roasted Escolar, Truffled Potato, Corn, Foie Gras Chicken Jus (Son of a Gun) and Foie Gras Panna Cotta, Caramel, Caviar (Ludo).
We were lucky enough to go into the kitchen and take a photo with the chefs!
