Dinner at Treadwell - quick review
2 of us went to Treadwell for dinner. Everything went smoothly once we were there. It's nice to sit & eat by the water.
We had the 6 course tasting menu $75, with wine pairing $35. (It's a steal.)
The sommelier, James Treadwell, was very informative & paired wine beautifully. I specially enjoyed the Chardonnay he paired with the white fish & lobster in cream sauce.
The 6 course tasting menu composed of 6 courses from the dinner menu, which were (in correct order):
Foie Gras, Pork, Trout, Whitefish, Short rib & raspberries.
However, we requested for the 2nd person:
Lamb instead of short rib &
Chocolate instead of raspberries.
Altogether, we tasted 8 dishes.
The amouse bouches were in 2 shot glasses: tomato water & tomato foam. The tomato water reminded me of Thuet's version which was equally good. Service was good.
Stephen Treadwell is a very talented chef. Every dish was prepared very good to excellent. I think it's on par with the Exotica Canadiana in Splendido I had last month.
I'll definitely go there again when I'm in the area or even as a destination by itself. It's only 1hr 45 min drive. It's closer than Eigensinn Farm & much easier to get a table.
