    I could live on the uni and lardo ricci, perfect langostines or bone marrow and octopus fusilli. The choice and quality are staggeringly good. -Gail Simmons, Top Chef

    Order the now-famous fusilli with octopus & bone marrow or the spaghetti with sea urchin and crab. For those that don't like fish, the aged sirloin steak with bone marrow panzanella. [Eater 38 Member]

    Sugarbush is a fantastic mix of bourbon and maple syrup. Combine with some foie gras and Hawaiian swordfish and leave happy, or have the lobster ravioli and leave euphoric.
