Posh Restaurant Review: Are you ready for a concept that, at first, may make your head spin? But, after the first bite, will make your heart go pitter-patter? Posh calls its food “improvisational cuisine,” a seasonal approach to modern American cooking in which the diner chooses ingredients, notes preparation preferences and then lets the kitchen go wild. Think of it like a sushi bar, where diners check off their choices in boxes simply titled “smoked pork belly,” “rabbit,” “diver scallops,” “duck” and such. Choose your courses (from four to limitless), and chef-owner Joshua Hebert creates a custom meal with wine pairings. That means, for example, that the same table may get white asparagus poached with brûléed miso aïoli, or in soup with osetra caviar. For extra thrills, snag a counter seat overlooking the open kitchen to watch the chefs in action. Technically, the kitchen is closed on Tuesdays, but in a whimsical touch, guests can come in for a casual meal of ramen soup and other Japanese street foods.
