Asiate | Mandarin Oriental, New York

15605687019_c02e45da83_cI visit Asiate because it’s calm and beautiful….and Chef Angie always incorporates surprising elements of tea into her menu.

15606671950_164f66eb29_cThe “tea dish” this season is turbot with jasmine tea and leek jam. Mushroom consommé is poured tableside (from a teapot). And don’t forget to add white truffles, heehee.
