Last night, we joined two dear friends for our first visit to Manresa.
We didn't bring the camera, and we didn't take notes. It wasn't a meal to blog about, but an evening to catch up, chat, drink and laugh.
But I can't help but tell you--EVERYTHING you've heard about Manresa is true.
The attention to detail, to texture, to the interplay between hot and cold, sweet and salty... it's all there. We all ate something last night that pushed the boundaries of our palates, and we enjoyed them.
The service is impeccable. The room is beautiful. And Chef Kinch is a gentleman and genius.
Whatever excuse you've been using to put off a visit (ours was the travel time, and it took less than an hour from Oakland), lose it. Make a reservation. Today.
