Trotter remains one of the best chefs in the country, proving nightly that not only did he train the younger talent in town, but he can still school them. À la carte doesn’t exist here, so go full throttle with the impeccable, contemporary eight-course tasting menu and tack on wine pairings; this team hits them out of the park. Trotter changes the menu every other week or so, but his salutations to a season may include Millbrook Farm venison loin with coriander, preserved pearl onions and hedgehog mushrooms, plus roasted Muscovy duck with bitter melon and duck consommé..
