Asana With Rachel Klein
We stopped in (once again) at Asana at Mandarin Oriental, Boston, recently as the guests of Executive Chef Rachel Klein. It is so nice to see Chef Klein back on the dining scene. We sipped cocktails and munched on the new selection of appetizers, such as this Summer Tomato Salad. It included Watermelon, Heirloom Tomato, Sheep's Milk Feta, Mint, Cilantro and Chat Masala Vinaigrette.
Lobster Beignets were served with Creamed Corn, Chinese Sausage, Chili Aioli and Pea Tendrils. Amazing. Other favorites from the new menu but not shown were Crispy Artichokes and Crunchy Shrimp Skewers. M Bar also serves versions of all of these as bar bites and is quite the popular spot for cocktails. We'd suggest you drop by and see for yourself and, while you're there, peruse the museum quality art collection displayed in the public areas.
