Visit New York City: Dinner at Günter Seeger

For dessert, we had the Norwich Meadow Farm Raspberry Vacherin.  The raspberries were delicious!  They topped a sort of cream inside a meringue shell. 

One of Gem's friends said Günter Seeger NY was a must visit.  Since we already had reservations at Per Se and Eleven Madison Park (both three Michelin star restaurants), I wasn't exactly jumping for joy to eat at another fine dining restaurant.  Truth was, I kind of just wanted some pizza.  But I am so happy that we did decide to dine at Günter Seeger NY because it was my favorite of the entire trip. 

Günter Seeger NY opened in 2016 and earned its first Michelin star in 2017.  The restaurant features two menu options that change daily and offers seating in the main dining room or at the exclusive Chef's Table.  I didn't think we could eat another 10 courses after having over 10 courses at Per Se earlier for lunch.  However, the dishes on Günter Seeger's menu are exciting and well balanced which made it one of the most enjoyable meals I have ever had.  
I loved the beautiful elegant, but low key dining room.

Our first course:  Cherry Tomato Tart with Parmesan Sauce.

Blue Fin Tuna Toro Tartare, Fresh Peanuts.

Spot Prawn on a Salt Rock, Habanero Sauce.  When the server brought the raw prawn, they were so fresh and lively that one jumped off the plate twice!  Here they are cooking on the hot salt rock.

One of my favorite courses:  Baked Heirloom Beet, Umeboshi.

Oasis Farm Egg, Hokkaido Uni, Truffle Sauce.

Hand Harvest Scallop, Cauliflower, Lime Emulsion.

Red Deer Venison Noisette, Wild Myrtle Berry, Celery Puree.

One of the main reasons I think I enjoyed this menu so much was because the ingredients he used were familiar to me and not overpowering in flavor.  The service was also exceptional which made for an even more amazing experience.  Another fun part was to be able to meet Chef Günter Seeger and let him know how much we enjoyed our dinner.
