The luncheon offered us all a delightful taste of RKT's current seasonal menu. The afternoon's primi: Butternut Squash Gnocchi (roast apples, white asparagus, micro celery, truffle blue cheese cream). The dish was deeply layered with tangy blue cheese notes, sweetness from the apples and earthy truffle. Textural contrasts of the celery and asparagus complemented the slightly firm gnocchi.
Entree: Herb Crusted Roast Salmon (sweet potato puree, red beets, sunburst squash, bearnaise). Buttery, silky salmon and crisp squash medley. Nicely paired with a Cotes du Rhone that pulled the tarragon straight forward.
Dessert: Bittersweet Chocolate Parfait (concentrated raspberries, malted chocolate bubbles, crystallized peanuts) A fluffy, rich palate-coating dessert that wrapped the meal up with a bow. Nicely done.
Overall a very nice afternoon, one that brought Restaurant Kevin Taylor into a new light for me. Kudos to all involved on the renovations. I look forward to going back and encourage you to try Restaurant Kevin Taylor for yourself (or at least one of his other restaurants in the catalog).
