The first ever edition of Dominique Ansel’s new tasting menu U.P. launched on July 17 and lucky guests of the Cronut master were treated to eight courses of over-the-top, inventive desserts and cocktails. The theme of the evening was “first memories last forever” and the entire menu evoked firsts: first kisses, first memories, first jobs etc. To get a sense of the fun creations, the “first kiss” dish was served in bowls meant to evoke men’s and women’s cheeks. There was also a “first jobs” course made of nougat and praline resembling a bar graph.
