Scaramouche Faves?

I'm heading to Scaramouche in a couple of weeks for my birthday dinner. What have people loved on the menu?

For starters it looks like I'll be having salad as there are quite a few uncooked items and I can't eat those right now, but I'm still interested to know what you like in Starters, Mains and Desserts!

  1. We were there a few weeks ago. There were some starter specials that were excellent, but the octopus on the regular menu was also very good. Of the mains, we also went with specials, but the handmade pasta was perhaps the best of them all. For dessert, it was a toss up between the coconut cream pie and the hidden rose apple kouign amann.

      Thanks Dr. John! Coconut cream pie sounds great. I may have to have two desserts as I was thinking crème brulée!

    2. Their french fries (or do they call them frites?) are outstanding. Among the best that I've had.

        I think they only serve those in the pasta bar (though I am sure with special request the dining room would do so as well).

        As to the OP's request - They do an excellent Foie Gras Torchon app, love the pickled ramps they pair with it. The gnochci app is great (thought a slightly small portion). Their Duck main's are always fantastic, and as someone eluded to, the Pasta main (my wife's favourite) is consistently excellent.

        1. re: Sadistick

          We ate there last week, and I second the recommendation for the gnocchi app. It was fantastic, and probably the single best dish we had that night.

          For desserts, the coconut cream pie is sort of their thing, but I preferred the kouign amann (it was small but absolutely delicious).

      2. If they have 'Venison with Marchand de Vin' Red Wine Reduction. Go for it!! Absolutely amazing!!!

          Def go for the coconut cream pie.

        2. another vote for Coconut cream pie... especially if you are a fan.

          Unless you can get to Henry's in Boca, there is nothing like it!

            I won't be getting on a plane for a while. So I guess I'll have to get the pie at Scaramouche!

          2. Thanks to everyone who has replied so far!

                  I think I remember reading somewhere that you can order / pickup their coconut cream pie for pickup? Is this true and if so how much do they charge for it?

                  1. re: squirms

                    I believe the pie is $35 and yes, order in advance.

                    1. re: millygirl

                      I wonder if you can just buy a slice?

                      1. re: TeacherFoodie

                        If you have dinner there, I can't imagine why not. They are very eager to please so I can't see how this would be a problem but why not just call and ask to get an immediate answer??

                        1. re: millygirl

                          Great - so I can still have two desserts even if I can only eat one! Creme brulee and then pie to go!

                      2. re: millygirl

                        $35.00 is a great deal for a pie that good...

                          1. re: squirms

                            I believe it to be $35 but as I said, best to call and confirm price has not gone up.

                      3. re: TeacherFoodie

                        The pie is worth buying the whole thing (not just a slice).
