It would have been easy for Michael Mina's restaurant to simply rely on its cadre to make an impression. Fortunately, Mina’s passion for cooking and creativity, triggered at an early age, and now his determination, assure that any dining experience here is much more about the food (with its unexpected flavor combinations that come in three steps per course) than the admittedly gorgeous environs.
