Sneak Peak of My Dinner at Aureole

All my photos from my astounding dinner at the new Aureole in Manhattan will be up shortly. In the meantime, feast your eyes on chef Chris Lee's brilliant Crispy Soft Shell Blue Crab with Belgium endive, granny smith apple, smoked paprika and "sauce rémoulade". Don't you love how the crab is camouflaged within the greens and creative plating of the ingredients. This mouth watering mid course was perfectly paired with a glass of Peter Lehmann Riesling, Eden Valley, Australia, 2008.

More to come…
