chinese, italian
We all know the age old question, who invented the noodle, the Chinese or the Italians? With this series of dinners, I'm celebrating a marriage between the two cuisines. Come hungry and bring an open mind.

Menu detail

5 Spice Beef Raviolo
Small Plate
Short ribs are heavily seasoned with a 5 spice blend, then are braised until tender. It then gets shredded with tofu and stuffed inside pasta dough with an egg yolk in the middle. The raviolo is served in the braising liquid and garnished with fresh herbs.
Smashed Cucumbers
Small Plate
Whole cucumbers get lightly smashed with a rolling pin, to help get all the flavor in there, then they are marinated with black vinegar and chile.
Pea Shoot Salad
Small Plate
My favorite addition to every meal is a bright, crunchy salad to balance all the greasy food. This one has pea shoots, cabbage and celery and is dressed in a lemony sesame dressing.
Dan Dan Noodles
The classic Chinese dish, updated with an Italian style egg noodle, served in a soy based pork sugo, and garnished with crunchy and acidic pickled vegetables.
Chinese Bomboloni
The classic Italian style fried doughnut, dusted with black sesame sugar and filled with miso caramel.
