Atelier Crenn

Dominique Crenn, a two Michelin-starred chef and owner of Atelier Crenn and Petit Crenn, holds the honor of the World's Best Female Chef on San Pellegrino's World's 50 Best Restaurants 2016 list. Famous for artfully presenting French dishes with a focus on innovation, Crenn grew up on a farm in Brittany, France, and came to the United States in the 1990s. She describes her food as "poetic culinaria." Crenn and her chef de cuisine, Rodney Wages, base their tasting menu on a poem Crenn writes at the start of each season. Guests never see a menu, but instead guess at what is to come by reading between the lines of the poem. Presented at the start of the meal, the poem describes the emotions and sensations Crenn intends to convey with her meal. Precisely mixing methods and flavors to create dishes that resemble art, the meal comes over several courses that number between 14 and 17. Each are small bites, and diners are often encouraged to use their fingers. Bring your wallet. The tasting menu price is $298 per person. A 20 percent service charge is included. Taxes are not.
