Settling in for dinner after an all-night flight from the States and a day of sightseeing (the old hit the ground running strategy), our son had arranged for our party of six to share the chef's table for dinner at Particolare.
We walked in to the kitchen to find candles lit and rose petals strewn about. Breathtaking. Even better--the amazing dinner of small plates that followed. An easy pace, from the risotto croquettes and the gently-prepared vegetables in emulsion to the marinated tuna plate, with lovely wines to match. My sense of the cuisine--everything is light and fresh, perfectly seasoned, and full of intense flavor. (It's without question one of the nicest meals we had during our week-long stay in Belgium and Germany.)
The chef, Philippe, sat with us, sharing a beer and great conversation. An ebullient man, full of wonderful stories and great cooking tips. He's a fun character to get to know!
