This month, MARKET by Jean-Georges at the Shangri-La Vancouver is celebrating their 4th Anniversary with a specially created 5 course tasting menu. If it’s anything like the spectacular Valentine’s Day Tasting Menu we recently experienced, I recommend making a reservation soon.
Last week our taste buds were awakened by a perfectly prepared 5 courses; Oysters & Caviar, choice of Hamachi Sashimi on Truffle – Garlic Toast or Foie Gras Brulee with Pineapple Meyer Lemon Jam, choice of Dungeness “Black Pepper” Crab Fritters or Nova Scotia Lobster Tail, choice of Grilled Chicken with Kumquat Lemongrass Dressing or Roasted Venison with Quince Medeira sauce & Broccoli Rabe, finishing off with a beautiful red and white Raspberry & Rose Pavlova or Warm Chocolate lava cake with Caramel Ice Cream. Describing it won’t do justice, but every item was beautifully presented and just the right taste to lead into the next plate.
The rest of February the Open Table 2012 Diner’s Choice Winner features a tasting menu including: Arctic Char Sashimi draped in Trout Eggs in Lemon & Dill, Seared Scallop with Caramelized Cauliflower with Caper-Raisin Emulsion, Ling Cod in Malaysian Chili Sauce & Thai Basil, Aged NY Strip with Gingered Shiitakes & Soy Caramel Emulsion, Warm Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Ice Cream. The Anniversary Tasting Menu is $49 per person. It’s a great location to celebrate your own anniversary, special occassion or just to treat yourself to a great evening out.
MARKET by Jean-Georges is located on the 3rd floor of Shangri-la Vancouver at 1115 Alberni Street
