Elizabeth Falkner’s latest venture, Orson, flings open its doors tomorrow. The SoMa eatery will feature a menu that is, um, whimsical, to say the least. From the Daily Candy:
The focus of the menu: edgy Californian. Dishes like butterfish brûlée with caviar and radish play with technique. Small plates without borders run the globe from Japan to India (tempura egg with shoyu and spice, samosas with chutney and raita sorbet). Desserts, naturally, reach for the final frontier. Try the Pigwich (maple bacon ice cream sandwich) or a Wonka-esque “invisible dessert” (an intense concoction made with transparent ingredients).
Ooh, Butterfish. Well, there seems to be plenty else to choose from. And if the scene at Citizen Cake is any indication, you may want to get on the horn to that reservation line (available on the website) pretty early tomorrow. Check back here soon for the menu.
