I’m counting down the 100 best dishes I tasted in 2016…
Chawanmushi is not a dish you see on many menus at hip, seasonal Brooklyn restaurants. But Olmsted is not your typical hip, seasonl Brooklyn restaurant. It’s the best restaurant I visited all year and the fact that Chef Greg Baxtrom is reinterpreting this Japanese egg custard is a win for everyone involved (the Japanese, the Brooklynites, and the diners). A rotating roster of seasonal ingredients (like earthy truffles or maitake mushrooms) come mixed with charred onions and that delicate creamy egg custard. Price: $16
