"It's a perfect balance of sweet and savory, and the textures are spot-on flawless. I love how it comes in a cool little jar with lobster sitting on top of the egg and froth to top it all off. This dish has been on the menu for years, and for good reason. The food is swanky but the atmosphere is lively and modern."
"Chef Gabriel Kreuther hits all the right notes in transforming his Alsatian heritage, classic training, and creative innovation into a deeply pleasing experience. The Bar Room is relaxed and casual, allowing you to mix and match smaller plates to sample a wide and ever-changing assortment of dishes that are as vibrant and refreshing as a glass of Zind-Humbrecht Riesling. I love the slow-poached egg with lobster, artichoke purée, and sea urchin froth."
