Upon some good reviews from common friends, a few of my friends and I decided to eat at Le Miu one of the few Friday nights I was actually back in New York.  They have this whole contemporary Japanese fusion vibe going on.  I thought that the presentation was very notable and creative.  There was a pretentious air to the food that was a bit wasted on me.  Gold flakes are interesting on food and exudes an air of poshness, but I thought it was unnecessary and tasteless.  

To me, the appetizers are where it’s at and the sauces lacked the punch that it needed to be a really great sauce for both the chirashi and the cod.  The preesentation is great, but I probably won’t be back for a while.

 I ordered the salad because it had truffle oil.  Good lord, I’m a sucker.  But it was a good mix green salad with grapefruit, mushrooms, and avocado.

Nothing really stands out from the selection of raw stuffs they included, but there was the sea urchin.  You don’t see that in chirashi much.

Although miso black cod is one of my favoritest dishes EVER, I wasn’t completely satisfied with Le Miu’s version.  I admit that wrapping the fish in the pylo dough is very innovative, I was disappointed by its overly sweet sauce.

One of my friends decided to try out one of the omakase meus, and this is one of the courses that he received.
