I normally abhor going out for NYE dinner normally since like Valentine’s day it’s an overpriced meal 99% of the time that isn’t that inspiring. Eden Hill’s menu was different and when I read about it and saw it was only $100 for 7+ courses I called to make a reservation. I sat at the bar seat closest to the kitchen so I was able to see the night progress. I’m glad I got a seat right away as other guests waited close to an hour for their table, the ambitious menu took a bit longer to produce than anticipated according to Chef Max. Doesn’t help that the kitchen it the size of a large walk-in closet, I’m astounded every time I dine at Eden Hill how they manage to produce such wonderful dishes in such a small space. My favorite dish was the sweetbreads, it was almost like sweet and sour style and similar to how I sometimes prepare it at home with a marsala butter sauce. The cheddar doughnut was also amazing, I could’ve eaten a few more, the ice cream was more like a warm custard after frying and it had a silky texture. The squid dish was particularly inventive, the cracked was 99% composed of squid and certainly tasted like it.
