    Zion Extraordinaire!

    Farewell dinner at the “Chef’s Table,” which has become so popular that it’s now difficult to get seating there. So I booked well in advance for a last dinner with Chef Jean Baptiste in this visit. (Sitting with me at the Table, BTW, were two very interesting couples from New Jersey — two police chiefs, one retired & one soon-to-be-retired, and their lovely wives.)

    The pics posted here say just about everything to describe an amazing four course dinner experience. Jean Baptiste Piard & team set a new record for me in gastronomy.

    Starting with an amuse bouche of Arancini with smoky mashed potatoes

    Dennis, the staff at Zion outdid themselves for you. I am delighted with the send off with that delicious meal you deserved.

    Thank you, Dennis for sharing! Really outstanding event. One could ask though: Zion or L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon, what is your fav?

    It’s difficult to publicly reply, Leon. I, nonetheless, will say that Zion surpasses L’Atelier . . . for which I have enormous respect.

    With respect to L’Atelier,I recommend that anyone who is curious about the gastronomique style of the current Robuchon chef . . . . you should go there sooner rather than later. When Robuchon re-opens in New York, I would not be surprised to read that the current SBH chef has de-camped to NYC (“If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere!”). It’s difficult to imagine an equally fine replacement.
