Folks, we only have one week left, and when this announcement that foie gras ramen is now being served at ame, well, I know what’s on my farewell list. This special bowl of ramen ($24.80) includes seared foie gras and duck foie gras wontons and is available during dinner service through the end of the month; the ramen is also available at Ame’s bar/lounge during lunch and dinner hours. Bar is open Sun–Thurs 12pm–12am, Fri–Sat 12pm–1am, dining room Mon–Thurs 6pm–9:30pm, Sat 5:30pm–10pm, and Sun 5:30pm–9:30pm.

Looking for a showstopper for dessert? Swing by COI to experience executive pastry chef Matt Tinder’s five-course dessert menu that is offered Tuesday-Thursday evenings. It’s $45 as a special dessert-only tasting and on Fridays and Saturdays as a supplement to the regular tasting menu for $10 ($175 total). A chef friend tells me the white chocolate-foie gras ganache and walnut number (developed at Meadowood) is delicious. Oh, and there is also a new vegetarian tasting menu (12 to 14 courses) offered nightly for $145. Hours are Tues–Sat 5:30pm–10pm.
