A perfect dish

Behold the tuna-foie gras, an Eric Ripert classic that is permanently on the menu at Blue by Eric Ripert.

I've eaten this dish more than a dozen times, and every single bite every single time has been delicious.  It used to be on the Le Bernardin menu as well,  but I've heard it no longer is--but is still available there if you ask.

Nestled under the incredibly thin sheet of tuna is a very thin strip of brioche coated with an even thinner layer of foie.

I cannot conceive of a way to improve this dish.  It is perfect, an amazing set of flavors unlike anything else.

If you ever get a chance to eat it, do so.
