Event – Got Sushi? Private Tasting Event @RestauranThalia – MAY21

UPDATE: What we did know: To come hungry. What we didn’t know: There would be 7 dishes, all of which were full portions besides the sushi rolls (menu above, right). Chef Honrado (above, left) was so gracious and humble with his Kool-Aid smile that we knew we would taste love in his food. The plating was on par with the best. We were especially happy with the salmon and the scallop dishes. Some constructive feedback/tweaks to the menu was given and we are positive that everything will be taken into consideration going forward, if not already. If you are in the area, shoutout @RestauranThalia and GO!


Be sure to check out Thalia Restaurant, as they also have $1 oyster nights!

We’ll be sure to report back with plenty of pics and our brutally honest review, as always :)

This guy is the real deal, having worked at the highly revered Mugaritz, and it shows. When it comes to textures, temperature, and technique, the execution is practically flawless. None of the food is coerced or phony. Even their butter is intentional. The flavors? Well, read on…
