"Glazed with fermented black bean. Scallion pancake. Pickled cabbage. Black garlic hoisen. This is a classic pairing but when I was writing the menu, pretty sure I was just hungry. And tried to figure out a way to tighten it up"

"Sometimes components of other dishes make it into newer dishes . This dish was composed in one night by the team. We had some beautiful snake river farms wagyu, added our black truffle base that has seen a few dishes , some lusty monk and dressed it up with good olive oil , maldon and some black pepper . The supporting actors here were the crispy UGF trumpets and we knew we wanted egg so we pulled out one from 2008 and cooked our egg yolks gently in a bath to give it more of a pudding like texture . Great balance beef, acidity, earthiness, fatty, crunchy and salty."
