Peter Shears Downtown
The New Peter Shears showcases lunch and dinner menus of creative, contemporary cuisine dreamt up by executive chef and gastronomic guru Nathan Mushrush. Awaken a slumbering appetite with an order of goat cheese fritters with red pepper coulis ($10) or barbecue-dusted calamari with cilantro aioli ($10). Fresh seafood dishes simultaneously set senses afloat and anchor the attention of distracted diners. Peter Shears's #1 ahi tuna ($25) displays sweet-and-savory sophistication, dry-rubbed with Madagascar vanilla bean and glazed with black sesame napa slaw. Even heartier entrees maintain their elegance, as proven by protein-packed plates such as rosemary-and-garlic-soaked spring lamb with mint apple jelly ($32) and Japanese bison ($30), a hoisin-grilled sirloin served with sesame-roasted shitakes and a nest of sweet potato. Plentiful pasta is also available, such as fettuccini alfredo ($16) or basil pesto penne ($16).
