The menu we were having was based on the summer tasting menu prepared by Chef Olivier's team, available during dinner service. Some seasonal ingredients were utilized, and I love the rich yet refreshing flavors presented in many dishes, which seemed to work well under the tropical weather of extreme heat and humidity.
Throughout the meal we were "slightly" distracted by the intrusion of some "unexpected guests" - well, I meant most of us at the table were in the middle of the "Pokemon Go" craze so we were busy collecting Pokemons often showing up around us. I am sure the restaurant was relieved that they seated us in the private room. Ha ha. I couldn't recall any fine-dining meal being so much fun.
