Inventive menu at Laurent's Modern Cuisine holds few disappointments

Asian beef cheeks salad with house-made pickles.

For desserts, we have pastry chef Elise Broz to blame, and it's clear that in her there's another major talent in the kitchen. Broz, with training both foreign and domestic, is not afraid to play with her food, and the results can be breathtaking. A bowl of tropical "soup" with pineapple in several forms, mango sorbet, and tapioca sounded impossibly busy but was a masterful blend of textures, tastes, and temperatures. Deconstructed s'mores come to you looking like a playground with Broz-made graham crackers (crumbled into play sand) and marshmallows, chocolate straws, a raspberry sorbet quenelle, and more. And gingered donuts with torched figs played warm against a cool lemon curd. Nothing beats leaving on a high note.

As I said: go now.
