Dont see much talk about it. Any must eats?
the duck a l'orange is really good.
had the frog legs as well. wasn't overly impressed, but seems to be a popular dish.
Thanks to you both. Wound up having a great dinner there last night. Here's a quick rundown of what we had (4 of us)
Frog Legs - While I wasn't blown away as well I enjoyed it. Completely not what I expected. More like a beautiful little salad with mushrooms, deboned legs, other goodies and a very nice garlicky sauce
Mussels - Fantastic! Maine mussels, some of the biggest I've had. Excellent sauce.
Escargot - Another classic that didnt look anything like the classic. Major garbanzo presence and more amazing sauce (black garlic, sort of curry'ish)
Tournedos Rossini - Great dish. didnt care for the Foie much, but the filet was perfectly cooked (medium rare) and very flavorful for a filet, worked very well with that madeira sauce. Asparagus was a bit too buttery
Duck a l’Orange - Had a few bites and thought it was very good. Perfectly cooked and nicely crisped. Not too orangy
Black Bass - Another winner. More incredible sauce (with mint, other herbs). Very flavorful overall even after eating the richer stuff
Maine Lobster Thermidor - Ordered by the "no sharing policy" member of the group. Looked good. Maine lobster and not the messy Thermidor I'm accustomed to
Profiteroles - Awesome
Chocolate Mousse with Passion fruit - Awesomer! Lately I shy away from the Mousses (Mice?) but this was different and delicious
Some pictures of the meal for ya boys and girls.
If you guess all the Philosophers on the wall they give you a free flu shot, I think. I may have been a little buzzed when the waitress explained the rules. They can show you a chart of the names if you wish.
