Eleven Madison Park @ NYC

Dinner at Eleven Madison Park started with Gougères and a glass of Rosé champagne.
Amouse bouche.
Trying too hard here. Spherified salmon with caviar. Why would you do this to perfectly good salmon. The spherification adds nothing. I bet they had to extract out (or emulsify) some of the fat so that it would spherify correctly--fat has the flavor here!
