Alexa Walsh gathers eight dinner guests around 42 Grams' kitchen counter (there's a slightly large, conventional table as well) to begin each experience, detailing what diners are about to eat. Her husband, chef/owner Jake Bickelhaupt, and a few other chefs then plate up something astonishing. It might be tea-smoked salmon, a porky barley porridge, or Wagyu beef with Japanese accents. It might come in a spoon or a bowl, or on a stick. Whatever it is, the cumulative effect of the 14-course BYO tasting menu is like being in the owners' living room (they actually live upstairs) with a better spread than any dinner party you've ever been to.
