My wife and I had a great meat at Hortus. We started with some of their wine and beer cocktails. This beauty was made with plum wine:
Then we dove into the apps. First, a chilled seafood plate with lobster tail, shrimp, oysters and tuna tartare.
Next up, crispy octopus and fried lobster claws with uni and caviar. HOLY SHIT THESE WERE GOOD!
For entrees, we had truffle rice with uni and ikura/roe, and short rib. Both excellent, but I surprisingly favored the rice dish.
On the side, some roasted fall veggies. These had a sweet and tangy glaze on these.
Dessert was green tea tiramisu and rice pudding. The tiramisu was the winner for us.
Great meal! I’d definitely come back here, and look forward to doing so soon.
