The herbed risotto is infused with pureed bok choy, which imparts the subtle but distinct flavor of green tea and adds a woodsy, natural touch to the dish. Tenderly cooked maitake mushrooms add to the mood. The earthy yet summery flavors bring to mind a forest path on a sunny day: shady, green and calm, yet full of life.
It’s the mark of an excellent fine-dining experience when you can feel pampered and surprised at the same time. Try the red snapper at Mission + Market, and you’ll be impressed — not just with the opulence, but also with the way your high expectations are exceeded.
