After last year's outstanding meal, we decided to go back for our anniversary. We had another spectacular meal.
We arrived on time and our table was waiting. Our waiter was the same fine gentleman we had last year. We started with some cava, and enjoyed a small smoked trout amuse-bouche. We ordered the basil flan with mushrooms and duck tongue, as well as the roasted squash soup. For the main course, my wife had the grilled wild Alaska halibut with black olive dumplings, and I had the rabbit loin. We shared a bottle of Alsace, recommended by our waiter, which was moderately priced and quite delicious. The wines by the glass are somewhat limited, so you may prefer to share a bottle instead. There are nice choices available in a wide range of prices (unlike many high-end restaurants).
The new owner/chef, Justin Aprahamian, is gradually making the menu over to reflect his approach and tastes. He's keeping the best of the prior menu, and adding things (like rabbit) that would never have been served by Sandy d'Amato.
We finished up with a gratin of fruits and cappuccino, completely satisfied by an evening filled with food, drink, and conversation. We may have to come back for another round next year!
