Best Tuna Tartare EVER

Thank God for Michael Mina and his new restaurant Seattle RN74 to lift me out of the post-vacation funk.

Presentation is everything in dining, and this one scores 100%.

Amazingly fresh Ahi, topped with a perfect little quail egg, wonderful seasonings and accoutrement on the side, such as perfectly diced Asian pear (that is the square grid looking thing), pine nuts, scotch bonnet pepper, mint and sesame oil–mixed table side before heaping onto toast points.

We may have to try our hand at recreating this.  On the shopping list for next weekend at the farmer’s market, quail eggs!

Bravo Michael, and thank you for coming to Seattle!
