THE VANCOUVER SUN – Mia Stainsby | It’s been too long since I’ve visited New York… So it was really nice of New York to come and visit me. Market at Shangri-La in Vancouver borrowed chef Anthony Ricco from New York’s Spice Market to bring some of his food here. Both restaurants are operated by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, whose name is spoken in reverential tones even in that jaded city.
We shared four à la carte dishes, plus a dessert. Shaved tuna with chili tapioca, Asian pear and lime ($14) was, if I may speak in rhyme, sublime: Petals of sashimi-grade tuna and a quenelle of tuna broth sorbet were served over a coconut kaffir lime broth. Vietnamese chicken curry ($22) featured half a chicken chopped into eight pieces in a beautiful coconut curry broth; fresh cut herbs
rained down upon it…
Ricco says he was impressed by the passionate, hard-working crew at Market. By his reckoning, this generation of New York chefs are getting a little too soft.
In Vancouver, Market impressed me once again, with casual but impeccable service. Case in point: a server saw us switching dishes and swooped in with the proper cutlery for each of us. The congenial professionalism is just right.
