So, while I had hoped to write a meaningful, thoughtful article about my dinner at Meadowood, prepared by Chef Kostow on the last night of their 12 days of Christmas series, I simply can't.
...
I had met Chef Kostow at the 2011 Michelin ceremony in late October, and was lucky enough to visit Meadowood only a mere 7 weeks after that 3-star announcement was made. On our first encounter Chef Kostow was nothing but humble and overwhelmed by having been given such a prestigious award. I wondered if, after giving it some time to sink in, he would realize that he's the man, puff out his chest, and change his tune. This couldn't have been further from the truth. The second time we met he was nothing but humble, grateful, appreciative of his staff, and down to earth.

Reading this again I do think that if someone offered you the chance to return you should do so - especially considering your excellent amuse bouche article; Kostow sent out some of the most thoughtful amuses I've seen anywhere and would have been a perfect target for that article. The man is as precise and careful as any chef I've witnessed and his use of scent and aromatics is quite stunning.

Meadowood's chef left and, quite shrewdly, Meadowood plucked Chef Chris Kostow from Chez TJ, damaging the hopes of the Mountain View That Could.

It was a surprising meal - Kostow is definitely a talent. The meal was not perfect throughout but there were some great ideas and execution. The food is careful and reserved, almost feeling restrained; you sense that the chef is still developing his style (and/or learning how to incorporate it into the Meadowood resort framework.) He cites Daniel Humm (of Eleven Madison Park (NY) fame) as a mentor, and while I see the influence, I think Kostow has turned a corner for me that Humm has not - he's got a delicacy that Humm only touches on in his best dishes.
Given the lightness of many of the dishes, and the growing international vegetable movement, I could see Kostow incorporating more vegetables into the meal. Cooking in Napa, close to the produce, might provide the inspiration he needs to solidify this aspect of his cuisine and give it a fuller dimension. I would like to see if the summer bounty impacts his cooking. His deft touch might make a larger impact with the subtlety and variety of the many vegetables he (presumably) has access to.
