‘True Value in Artistry of Cooking’ at JG Domestic
Craig LaBan files what we refer to at Foobooz World Headquarters as a LaBoner, awarding three very enthusiastic bells to Jose Garces’ Cira Centre restaurant, JG Domestic.
… this kitchen is flexing its muscle through vivid seasonal flavors drawn from across the land, and, as a result, more spontaneity than most any other Garces restaurant. The brick-oven flatbread delivered an earthy whiff of Oregon truffles and chanterelles scattered over creamy white asparagus bÃ©chamel piqued with Jasper Hill cheddar. Tiny croquettes made from Lancaster sugar pumpkins burst inside the mouth like crispy capsules of warm squash soup. Little mason jars of cruditÃ© showcased winter produce at its most precious moment of crunch – tiny florettes of gold and purple cauliflower, blush-tipped radishes, baby turnips and carrots – illuminated with California olive oil and a tarragon froth of Green Goddess.
Three bells – Excellent
