JBF on the Air: Atera's Matt Lightner

Matt Lightner on Taste Matters

 

On this week's episode of Taste Matters, JBF's Mitchell Davis took a field trip to lower Manhattan to interview chef Matt Lightner at his Michelin-starred restaurant, Atera. Offering only mysterious tasting experiences (diners eat over 20 courses but are not given a printed menu), Matt encourages his guests to let their imaginations run wild and guess the ingredients and composition in each dish.
