Off-the-Menu, Off the Charts

One of the chefs even presented one of his own off-the-menu creations—an apotheosis of the California Roll, wearing masago and dressed with the unusual toppings of orange pieces and serrano chili slices, then brushed with an orange-based secret-ingredient sauce. It was like imbibing the fresh sea, albeit fruity-spicy. I did tell him he should add it to the menu.

It turned out to be a good day, after all.
