Hard to imagine a better presentation than this

This photo was taken some time back at Jia. Chefs have changed, and I am not sure this dish is on the menu any more, but the presentation is gorgeous.

Notice the contrast in colors including the dark brown beef, accented by a glaze of sauce, bright vegetables, especially the ripe red tomatoes and stark white plate. Obvious textural differences from the tender beef to crunchy vegetables also make for an interesting juxtaposition.

It is hard to imagine a better example of presentation.
