No matter how often you watch Ratatouille, you’re yet to fill the Paul Bocuse-shaped hole in your heart.
But there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
Actually, the light is in… Chinatown.
Held aloft by Partage, a modern French beauty strapped with tasting menus and projection tables, now open in Chinatown. See the slideshow.
You’ll bring a date that appreciates some modernism with their European dining. The one who doesn’t answer when you text late. They’ll be dressed in black, much like the dining room. Only without all the dangling orbs and pearlescent leather booths. Let’s presume.
After engaging in rum-based Vanilla Old Fashioneds or Champagne, you’ll either go a la carte or full tasting menu. Eatt’s chefs, vets of Michelin-starred restaurants, run the place, so you’ll be in good hands whether you do five, seven or nine courses.
Nine it shall be. And we know you’ll love the chef’s table, elevated for better witnessing tomahawk cuts emerge from that smoking glass box thing and seeing Iberico Secreto get deglazed live, no editing.
Then you’ll probably want to come back with a crew someday to storm the glass-encased private room. Where projection mapping fills the table with trippy images, making things look underwater when your scallops are served.
They’ll also project everybody’s name on their plates. Which could be useful.
Since you’re always forgetting what’s-his-name’s name.
