Esther's Kitchen - Seasonal Foodie Experience
We had reservations, thankfully we did, because there was quite the line of people hoping to get in to the first available table.
From the moment you sit down, it's obvious that a lot of thought has been put into every aspect of your experience. The decor is pleasant, welcoming, with plenty of light. The waiting staff are ready and happy to answer questions, give feedback, and generally help make the most out of your experience.
And this is a truly unique experience, really the best kind of foodie experience, with interesting and unique cocktails, appetizers, seasonal dishes, and unique desserts to create unique memories throughout your meal.
We began with the chef's spread, which is a loaf of sourdough bread with a variety of housemade spreads. Basil ricotta, camizola, anchovy butter, cannellini beans. This could have been a meal in and of itself. I love interesting bread options like this, its my favorite way to start a meal.
For the appetizer, we ordered the carrot gnudi, which is a carrot pesto and honestly a super form of pesto in my opinion, if you like carrots, try to get it while they still have it!
For our main course, we chose to try four different pastas. The pastas are out of this world, fresh, flavorful, with strong umami flavors combined with fresh pastas.
For dessert, I ordered all of them. Each of us tried the desserts several times, they're so unique, so flavorful, and so interesting that even unusual strange combinations like goat cheesecake make for memorable experiences that make me appreciative I was able to try it.
The food server was courteous, helpful, respectful of me taking photos, gave good advice, and shared her experiences and preferences, all which makes me feel like this is a quality establishment.
