Spring Menu Tasting at The Peninsula NYC

This past Monday, I (along with a few other NY food bloggers) attended a lovely and intimate menu tasting at Fives restaurant located in The Peninsula Hotel.  The event was meant to give us a chance to try a few of the new spring menu items, and to meet Fives' charming new Executive Chef, Chef Anuwat Nu Morakotjantachote (Chef Nu, for short).

The meal was amazing, and I was really impressed by the quality of the dishes. The menu was very seasonally inspired--filled with gorgeous, fresh Spring vegetables and grass-fed meats (and a pretty fantastic chocolate dessert!). As good as the food was, I think I was most excited about finally seeing so many gorgeous colors on my plate again--think bright green romanesco, red baby carrots, peas, asparagus, and lots of herbs.

Chef Nu himself was absolutely wonderful--he came out and described each dish in details, patiently answering any questions we asked. And the final sweet touch? We all got these adorable cupcakes to take home as a parting gift. (I ate mine for breakfast-dessert the next day!)

I posted an album containing pictures and details about each of the amazing dishes we ate; visit the Always Order Dessert Facebook page to check them out!
