One of the only courses that remains a constant at Saison: Brassicas.

Once again we bring you a lovely slideshow from our compadre The Ulterior Epicure (recently unmasked as Kansas City attorney Bonjwing Lee), who spent the last week dining around the Bay Area. He had a great meal at Sons & Daughters, was most impressed with Michelin three-starred Meadowood, had a swell lunch at Cotogna, and today we bring you the amazing sixteen-courser he enjoyed at Saison, at chef Joshua Skenes’s in-kitchen chef’s counter. “Skenes has a unique culinary voice and imagination. It was an exciting meal,” Mr. Lee tells us. “Can’t wait to go back.” He also says that based on this meal, Saison definitely merits two stars from Michelin, and we fully agree — but he should know … this guy’s eaten everywhere. We shall see on October 25!
