Abandoning his quest to create modernist reinterpretations of Asian classics, Homaro Cantu has shifted to dreaming up elaborate six- and ten-course themed tasting menus. They change every 90 days or so, but a sense of humor is required every visit. Imagine a feast based on Martin Scorsese movies, which includes savory veal cannoli, a simple chanterelle and fennel fettuccine, and a caponata crespelle served next to a mug shaped like a handgun, and you’ll get the idea. Luckily, each menu is paired with smart cocktail, beer, and wine selections, all of which are deftly deconstructed by a young, hip, and well-informed staff.
