Between the amuse bouche and the petit fours you receive at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire, you might think it’s your birthday, given all the gifts. And if you have your birthday dinner at Twist, well, all the better. The amuse bouche course when we dined at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant brought a bevy of wonders — many more than we even had time to write down. One of the standouts included a steamed and deep-fried potato chip in clarified water with dates. However, it’s nearly impossible to describe the kaleidoscope of flavors, textures and creative presentations the amuse bouche course brings. Just a few of the ingredients in the various amuse bouche: Roquefort cheese and apricot; piquillo peppers; caviar; saffron and black olives. Each of these special ingredients from around the globe was as delicately and masterfully prepared, as you’d expect.
