Get A Taste Of These Three

These three tasting menus caught our eye this week. Bindi is offering a “Seafood Delight” themed tasting menu today and tomorrow. The four-course meal is $35 and will include choices of poached lobster, banana leaf mahi and more.

It’s “Outrageous Onions” week over at Matyson where their themed weekly tasting menu costs $45. The highlight this week has to be the cashew crusted soft shell crab with sweet potato and caramelized onion fricassee, madras curry and grilled ramps.

Bistro 7 has gotten into the tasting menu fun through as well. Through Thursday you can get 5 courses for $35. Potatoes play an important part of the menu in the potato-goat’s cheese ravioli in sweet basil broth and the potato gnocchi with cured salmon and salmon caviar.

Complete menus for all three tasting menus after the jump.
