Hugo's Restaurant Review

: At Hugo's, chef-owners Mike Wiley and Andrew Taylor present avant-garde farm-to-table cuisine. The dining room, which looks into the open kitchen, has a rustic feel with brick walls and leather booths. Diners create their own tasting menus by mixing and matching from the following menu sections: Forest & Field (vegetables), Foraged & Farmed (meat) and From the Sea (seafood). Dishes might range from smoked carrot with carrot sponge cake, tofu purée and peanut nam prik to octopus with egg yolk, confit potato and chorizo to dry-aged steak with congee, sweet potato and radish. Desserts may include a play on the croque madame with "bacon" brioche crumb and brown butter ice cream. A five-course menu is priced at $90; wine or beverage pairings can be added for an additional cost. There's also the option to create a lighter meal by selecting two courses for $45. (Additional courses are $22 each.)
