The Tasting Menu at Benu, Illustrated
The faux “shark’s fin” soup that Chef Lee told us about.

Though we haven’t yet been able to score a reservation at Benu ourselves — thanks to our and everyone else’s breathless publicity for the place — Bunrab has done us a solid and shot a group of photos of the full tasting menu from chef Corey Lee during the restaurant’s second week. (Others have already told us the place is so polished “it feels like it’s been open two years.”) We can’t thank Bunrab enough, and we’ll set aside petty jealousy for now in the name of some fine, high-class food porn.
