This suave 12-seater chef’s table restaurant offers a night of seriously sexy and intense crustacean worship. Walk past uplit glass pickle jars containing frondy ferments, and a room full of bubbling filtration tanks called ‘the lobster hotel’, to enjoy a meal that elevates fish cookery to an art form. Pricy, but worth it.
