Today my wife and I attended a private event at Mistral for brunch. Since we are both mostly-vegan (and since brunch choices are often egg, dairy and meat-centric), I decided to call the restaurant the day before to ensure we would find some options we could eat. The host I spoke with was accommodating, put me on hold for a couple of minutes to talk with the chef, then returned to the call and assured me the kitchen would prepare vegetable plates for us both,
Wow, did they ever! We were presented with copper gratin dishes, filled with beautifully prepared roasted peppers, semidried tomatoes, green beans, young spinach, grilled asparagus, and maitake mushrooms. A second dish was delivered: mushroom carpaccio, topped with arugula, olive oil and a light touch of balsamic vinegar, along with plumped-up raisins. While the buffet for the other guests was excellent, those at are table were jealous of our meal.
To top off the experience, the restaurant manager, Brian Corbit, came over after 20 minutes to ask if we were pleased with the meal.
Overall, the food, the service, and the room (The Salon) were all outstanding. One of the most capable and responsive high-quality restaurants I've seen in years.
