Tocqueville or Adour ?

calconscious Jan 15, 2011 04:22 PM

celebrating our 7th anniversary - was thinking of Del Posto - but should have been thinking of it earlier - of those that still have reservations for Jan. 22nd - Tocqueville or Adour? We haven't been to either - any clear favorite?

        Adour has the benefit of Didier Elena at the helm, who has long been one of Ducasse's most reliable chefs. I don't think Tocqueville measures up.

        Also, the pastry chef, Sandro Micheli, likely makes the best macarons in the city.

          Neither. Go to Corton instead. Opentable shows openings at 7:15 and 8:45 on January 22.

            Tocqueville. Great service, beautiful room..very classy. Delicious food. We have only had memorable meals there. Marco the chef owner and his wife bring a personal touch to the restaurant that sets it apart.

            Have not been to Adour. Tocqueville is a wonderful restaurant. Innovative food, a great room and first rate management.
