Union Pacific
Chef-owner Rocco DiSpirito mixed Asian flavor & French technique and brought Union Pacific fame as a restaurant with revolutionary cuisine & superbly tasted food. Sweet, small scallops nuzzled in their shells by blobs of sea urchin with an essence of tomato, mustard oil, mirin & black mustard; mango & papaya carpaccio with pineapple sherbet and candied cilantro are only two of many masterpieces. The spirit of food is reflected in the restaurant's decor, which is spectacular & outstanding.
