Monkey Brains, Rick Moonen’s RM Seafood

Bananas are cut lengthwise then dipped in tempura batter and deep-fried to act as the base to this fun fusion dish. The crunchy and sweet elements from the banana cut into the intensity of the spicy king crab and big-eye tuna topping the dish. Texture and other notes are added through garnishes of pomegranate molasses, sweet wasabi mayo, macadamia nuts and micro cilantro. Grüner veltliners, with their notes of citrus and good acidity, are lively enough to play well with Asian fusion dishes. RM suggests Fred Loimer’s Lois grüner from Austria.

So it’s surprising that Labadie stays so close to a management script when he starts talking about Garfield’s Restaurant. As general manager and executive chef, Labadie’s all business about upcoming promotions, how beautiful the verandah seating is and the changes he’s made in the past 10 months to broaden his clientele.
