Atelier Crenn, Amazing and Memorable

Delicious Getaway

It seems like I rarely leave Seattle these days. While I really love spending everyday in my favorite city, there’s definitely a thrill to getting out of town for a couple days. Our fun trip to San Francisco to see friends included a mind-blowing dining experience at Atelier Crenn.

Can you see the anticipation in our eyes?

Would you like a tour of this amazing experience?

First things first, pick a truffle!

The menu is presented as poetry in flowers.

Each line of the poem has food representation!

I’ve never posted a meal dish-by-dish before, but in the case of Atelier Crenn, I believe we should have a little poetry reading.

So Savory

Fall has come with its cool breeze

Pear Kombucha

Searching for those swimming creatures, tasty and crispy

Kir Breton
Fish and Chips

Hidden in fallen leaves are treasures of the earth and sea

Seeds & Grains, table-side preparation

Come with me and look into the golden light

Koshihikari Rice, Sea Urchin & Barigoule

A burst of oceanic feeling, salty black pearls

Caviar, Kohlrabi & Koji

The whimsically ebullient blue umami leaning on the bluff

Brioche & Housemade Butter
Abalone, Roasted Garlic & Smoked Creme

As armored gents recount yellow giants and elfin foresters

Corn, Dungeness Crab, Porcini & Truffle

The ephemeral beauty born of jade effervescence sang

Matcha
Table-side tea service
Matcha and chicken broth

In starlight’s blush, an earthly song for the tender-footed beast

A-5 Waygu, Umeboshi & Bearnaise

Lingering blossoms fall for the bounty of the gatherer’s harvest

Dessert Like Mayan Poetry

The savory dishes were beyond anything I could have imagined, so I eagerly anticipated dessert, which you know is my favorite! There were SEVEN desserts!

Yes, you read that right: seven desserts. I do believe that is a very fair ratio!

Nopal Elixir & White Chocolate Avocado Cremeux
Masa Crisp
Sapote Ice Cream & Maracuya

Vanilla Bean Guanabana & Crystallized Tobacco Leaf
Recreation of Agave, Coconut & Iced Pulque
Mignardises

Every single dish at Atelier Crenn was beautiful beyond description and I will never forget such a special experience. If you happen to be in San Francisco and want to treat yourself to something incredible, make a reservation at Atelier Crenn.
