I really liked the design. Stunning.
You'd think that a restaurant that provides a pad of paper and pencil would be quite food-blogger-friendly.
But, despite its stark white interior, miX is sort of horrific for food photography because of its dreadfully dim lighting. Boo hoo for me.
Assorted complimentary bread.
See that brown square closest to you? That's some awesome house-made peanut butter. Swell stuff.
Japanese sea bream sashimi, corn emulsion, and popcorn ($18).
This wasn't my favorite, but it was an interesting effort. I'm not sure I've ever had sea bream before. It was a little on the chewy side. I did enjoy the dots of corn emulsion.
Tender potato gnocchi, pumpkin, and crispy bacon ($26).
Man, oh, man. Li'l nuggets of heaven on a plate. Like happy dough pillows.
Roasted Maine lobster "au curry," coconut basmati rice ($54).
Superfreakingdelicious. YOU MUST GET THIS. YES, I AM SHOUTING. The combination of flavors and textures knocked my socks off. It's not often that you have lobster prepared so creatively. This was my favorite dish of the night.
Beef Rossini ($75).
Decadent with a capital "D" -- one of the biggest pieces of seared foie gras I've ever seen perched on prime filet mignon swimming in a luxurious black truffle reduction, accompanied by the creamiest, most buttery mashed potatoes ever. Rich, rich, rich, rich. Jealous? You should be. Superb.
miX Dessert Tray ($20).
Complimentary madeleines and chocolate.
Now this mignardise was something. Blew our "real" dessert out of the water. Glad we ended with these warm sweet goodies.
I'm definitely visiting miX in the future and doing the tasting menu.
Why didn't we do the tasting this time?
Because of time constraints due to this.
