Chef Paul Ozimek of taste draws upon the culinary techniques he learned while studying with James Beard-award winning chefs in San Francisco and Chicago to create a menu of inventive New American cuisine. The Times Union lauded the dishes as "[provoking] moments of reverential chewing silence." That's due in part to the complexity of flavors: rainbow trout comes with charred stone fruit and jasmine sticky rice, for instance, and fried green tomatoes enhance sausage-stuffed lamb. The cocktail menu proves equally complex, with rotating seasonal martinis and cocktails.
Chef Mark D. Graham crafts menus at taste that showcase culinary techniques honed over more than two decades in the kitchen, including several years working as the sous chef at the Palo Alto Spago under Wolfgang Puck and Michael French. It was time well-spent—his menu presents inventive New American cuisine that led the Times Union to declare the chef's vision as being "bright, creative and precisely tuned...Graham isn't shy about crafting a menu that tempts you to try favorites of his you may have forgotten about or never sampled to begin with." Carnivores can delight in savory, slow-braised short ribs, Lover's Leap pork belly, or grilled filet mignon and the envious stares of nearby diners. Those who prefer their meals via sea can indulge in the halibut filet accented with salsa verde and summer couscous salad or salmon elegantly laced with asparagus butter.
