It’s hard to pin down the type of cuisine served at Stubborn Seed—“global” doesn’t do it justice. Raw shaved Florida cobia, Arab spiced foie gras, truffle chicken … chef Ford is constantly changing the menu and upping the ante for his guests, always keeping them on their toes. No two visits are alike, and the unique dining experiences are complemented by just-as-thoughtful cocktails such as the Negroni a la Ford (a negroni with a kick) and the namesake Old Fashioned.
If you’re looking for the Stubborn Seed experience on a budget, consider swinging by for happy hour. It’s literally only an hour but the promotion features the above cocktails plus oysters and other bites at a discount. Once you get a feel for the place, though, you’ll likely want to stay for a full-on dinner.
