That's the humongous, awesome wine cellar.
Mmmm, pate en croute. Mini pork pies.
That's braised pork belly with bean ragout and an herb vinaigrette. Mom wouldn't share :(
That's my appetizer, "Grilled (guess it's not much of a ceviche now is it) octopus ceviche." Flavor was definitely there, but octopus was slightly tough for my liking. Octopus at Lacroix for brunch is better (I'm not being blackmailed).
Rabbit Paillard with arugula/sweet pea salad and mustard sauce. Basically rabbit scalloppini. It was two flat slices of rabbit with mustard and some greens, and yep, that's it. I was expecting a little more out of an entree. The rabbit was good (too lazy to check the thesaurus), and the mustard sauce brightened it up. No new, bold, interesting flavors here. Not worth the money.
Trout, bok choy, hazelnut brown butter. Didn't taste this one. She's a looker though ain't she?
Cheesecake! and strawberry sorbet.
Delicious apricot sorbet, with a few cookies.
Beignets (I hope I spelled that right).
Wild strawberry sorbet. Tried this, delicious.
10 Arts was definitely good and worth going. The slightly expensive prices paired with mediocre food however, may delay your return. Though there are some other "playful" items I would like to try from the lounge menu (soft pretzels with cheddar sauce and jalapeno jam, mini fish burgers, etc.) 10 Arts ultimately falls into the category of a big name (Eric Ripert), no game restaurant- a foodie's worst enemy. Haha just kidding. I wouldn't go that far. Besides, I only went once, and that was opening night! Overall though, it just doesn't seem like Ripert has got his heart and soul put into this one like he does at Le Bernardin. But don't take my word for it, see for yourself.
