Bergamot RW March 2012

  • 3

Wow, another home run last night! Four of us went and ordered very nearly everything on the RW menu among us. A nice francese was served with grapefruit butter which was a nice twist. The brandade with aparagus, egg and hollandaise was so good it was painful to share, although the chicken-andouille gumbo was also lovely. The salmon, on a bed of shredded cabbage and with a sauce with a lovely mustardy vinaigery note, was as silky as can be. Both the leg of lamb with its divine sauce, and the vegetarian combo (which I did not try) were much praised. The yuzu mousse was amazingly fragrant and had a haunting citrusy flavor unlike the lemon-lime it is said to resemble. I heard (vociferously!) that the chocolate tart with salted caramel was outstanding but did not partake. Absolutely lovely service from all the FOH staff. The place was hopping but always a couple of tables available. Our terrific waitress told us it will be a whole new menu next week and we are considering a return. Highly recommended. They are incredibly nice on the phone, too.

  1. I'm not a RW person in general (for all the reasons usually trotted out) but it doesn't surprise me that Bergamot does its usual excellent job with both food and service. The brandade sounds wonderful!

      Yes, I am still thinking about that brandade....

    2. Yup, had the brandade, lamb, and chocolate tart, all were amazing. Also tasted the Yuzu mousse and it was great...reminded me of the yuzu juice one can get on japanese airlines instead of orange...really don't know why you can't buy it here, so good.

      I live right around the corner from Bergamot, have been there 4 times now, they blow me away every time.
