Ame
This cocktail could KILL you (but probably won't)

San Francisco

Aside from being BFFs with Hootie, blowfish are also responsible for an extremely deadly neurotoxin that causes numbness of the lips, lightheadedness, and intoxication. So, of course, Ame in the St. Regis decided, "Hey, why not make a drink with this?".

It's prepared using grilled fugu (blowfish) fin specially prepared so as not to kill you (fingers crossed!!).

Then steeped in super hot sake and set on fire tableside for no reason whatsoever.

Assuming you don't die, they suggest you pair it with these panko-breaded fried balls of cod. If you do die though, sorry. That sucks.

Also deadly... good (and fugu fin-complementing according to the owner-persons): this Cthulhu-resembling Lissa's Staff Meal, which comes with cuttlefish noodles, sea urchin, and a quail egg in a wasabi nest.

So, of course, Ame in the St. Regis decided, "Hey, why not make a drink with this?" Seafood, in all its myriad forms of fins, is what's on the menu. Complemented by an extensive offering of limited edition sakes and a raw bar, Ame leaves your zen balanced.
