Quince report

  • r

I had an outstanding meal at Quince the other day, i don't remember all the details but here is what i ordered:

corn sformato w/chanterelles - smooth and creamy, with great corn flavor -- excellent

garganelli w/leeks and summer truffle sauce - excellent

pork loin and belly w/shell beans and chard - the loin was tender and delicious and it worked well with the crisp pork belly - excellent

strawberry and sugar plum fritters - the only average point of the meal, the dough on the fritters was a little gummy - average

the service was fine as well

all in all, i have to say that I enjoyed this restaurant very much and it is at least on par with Chez Panisse and Oliveto

    "at least on par with Chez Panisse and Oliveto"

    In both cases, do you mean the cafe or the restaurant?

      on par (or maybe even better) than the downstairs restaurant at CP and the upstairs restaurant at Oliveto

      1. We dined at Quince on Saturday evening with another couple--it was our first you, I had the the corn sfornato & chanterelles a an appetizer; it was remarkable--one of the high points of the meal...service was very professional; our waiter knew the menu well and was very helpful with wine selections...I also recommend it highly...

        1. i'm thrilled to see you give quince some positive words. i really do love this restaurant. it's a consistent sort of good. it's a small gem in this city.
