Even if Brent Savage were somehow limited to a toaster oven, the plates coming from his kitchen would be far from predictable. At Bentley, where he has a few more gadgets to play with, his dishes are some of the most forward-looking and accomplished in town. Small bites are as intricate as the main event: a pretzel puff with chicken skin purée, a scallop ceviche that bursts with the freshness of sorrel granita, or spot prawns bound with a silky macadamia sauce. Pumpkin spaghetti with kombu oil and black-bean crumb is as thoughtful a main course as any protein. For dessert, violet ice-cream with Coco Pop-like honeycomb and musk sticks is both artistic and tasty. The wave of creative energy flows through the vibrantly modern Pascale Gomes-McNabb interiors and the well-oiled front-of-house, down to Nick Hildebrandt's carefully curated wine list (Jura fans take note). A microcosm of relentless perfectionism.
