Affäre’s dishes may or may not be the most instagrammable of all the Restaurant Week menu lineups. Start your IG photo conquest with its first course: roasted fingerling carrots, baby turnip, squash, kohlrabi dressed with an avocado coulis, circulated yolk and pecan dust.

It is an absolute work of art.

Michael Smith Restaurant

Michael Smith’s eight hour roast pork will leave you licking your plate. Served atop a scallion risotto, it is a filling dish that takes comfort food to elegant, new heights. Save room for dessert—I recommend the dark chocolate cake.
