Make do without, and you can still achieve greatness. Chef José Ramírez-Ruiz and pastry chef Pam Yung run Semilla, a small, humble restaurant in South Williamsburg that specializes in a quality tasting menu where culinary creations like white asparagus with smoked onion marmalade and turmeric custard with oranges and anise hyssop celebrate fresh ingredients, seasonal vegetables and simple preparation.
