CONGRATS TO ATERA AND MATT LIGHTNER ON GETTING TWO MICHELIN STARS IN THE 2013 MICHELIN GUIDE!

Notes:
-This is a chef’s-table-style restaurant.
-There’s a huge emphasis on foraging. They work with many foragers, and one of them is Evan Strusinski, who’s a foraging superstar.
-The chef worked at Noma and Mugaritz before!
-You can only get the tasting menu, which lasts around two-and-a-half to three hours. (Monte: I wonder if they’ll raise the cost after the 2 stars award)

This was our view once we were seated.
