Food presentation at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire is as artful as you’ll see in just about any eatery. The Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant takes great care to ensure that each dish comes out like a piece of art, with a number of asymmetrical serving dishes, special pots and a variety of plates and glasses to present the food in a functional but aesthetically pleasing manner. For example, the opening crostata appears in what looks like a tall, slender shot glass, which invites you to dip the protruding bread into the puree at its bottom. Single-bite amuse-bouches, such as the steamed and deep-fried potato chips in clarified water with dates, come teed up on a wooden holder, fastened to a bed of potato. Other dishes might arrive on silver platters, while one of the dessert offerings, the Apple Royale, came in a chilled martini glass. Suffice it to say the food presentation plays a huge part in the dining experience at Twist by Pierre Gagnaire; the restaurant wants to wow you not only with flavors, but with sights and textures as well.
