Orson Me Again

I've been wanting to check out the newly opened Orson for about a month now. Mellow drinks and apps with Samantha seemed like the perfect time. We sat in the lounge area while Wired magazien happened to have a party next to us. Even so, our service was spot on and we never felt ignored in favour of the larger group. They gave us a popped corn type amuse bouche that was expertly fried.

light fry tofu, house kimchee - $5

rye salami - $5

chicory salad, apple, hazelnut, lengua - $5

charred octopus salad, beef tendon, sprouted nuts - $10

The food was all very clean and delicate. Fresh as spring would be a good way to describe the feeling. I loved the sparse, industrial decor and delicious although spendy cocktail list. I can't wait to go to Orson again.
