We were looking for a restaurant to entertain a guest from California. Cafe Routier was at the top of the list but, alas, they did not have a reservation at the time we wanted so we opted to go elsewhere. Anxious to try CR, we made a reservation for the following evening. I'm glad we did.
A warm and friendly greeting immediately on our arrival by the hostess who called us by name. We were escorted to our table swiftly and our server responded with a second wonderful greeting. Cocktails were ordered and we were on the way to an exquisite evening. The specials for the evening were mentioned in detail by our waiter who treated us like we were his only table for the evening. I opted for the duck mousse special appetizer that was a delight to the palate followed by the duck that was equally delightful - perfectly cooked and seasoned with a cabbage side that was the best ever. My wife ordered the rabbit special who indicated that it, too, was perfectly cooked and seasoned reminding her of her Italian heritage where rabbit was common. Dessert was a rhubarb and strawberry crisp that topped off a wonderful meal. Only a short drive for us, we will be back to enjoy our new discovery that will be sure to make us regulars.
