Dinner at Cosme

IMG_4636

This past Tuesday I had the opportunity to have dinner at Cosme, Enrique Olvera’s new restaurant in NYC. I’m a long-time fan who has never eaten in any of his restaurants. I was in town for the StarChefs International Chefs Congress, which chef Olvera was a presenter at, and managed to grab a seat on opening night. I’m not a food reviewer or professional blogger, and there will be more in-depth critiques and photos elsewhere. I just wanted to share a glimpse of the amazing food being served there. I dined by myself, yet was able to consume 7 courses. I really didn’t want the dinner to end. This was truly one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten.
