Food Porn: Canlis

"We order whiskey and wine, are handed menus, and pore over the document which, in itself, exists like a history lesson on the glacial change of tastes and flavors and the particular obsessions of the Canlis family. There are dishes here that have existed, fundamentally unchanged except in price, for 60 years. The Canlis Salad has been called one of the 100 best dishes in America by Saveur magazine. The steak tartare is still made in accordance with a recipe written by the elder Canlis, if with somewhat different ingredients. And if you ever get the chance, the Peter Canlis Prawns are, with no exaggeration, one of the best things you will eat in your life."
