Victor’s Notes:

We recently went to Part III of the Push Project, which was a collaboration between Alex Stupak and Chris Cosentino, the chef of Incanto in SF and the winner of Season 4 of Top Chef Master. Chef Cosentino is famous for offal, as he has believes in eating the whole animal—from head to tail.

The meal had some interesting flavor combinations and ingredients, but I thought most of the courses were delicious—which is what matters, right? On another note, the two diners next to us definitely did not look too happy with the courses haha. I feel like they were expecting something else and got… this meal (which consisted of courses where Stupak and Cosentino were trying to be more creative and add their own influence). Oh well!
