Was planning on going next month for an anniversary dinner and would love to get more feedback about can't-miss items on the menu. Based on other posts, the best dishes seem to be the foie gras dumplings, sable, and a roasted pork loin, though the last item doesn't appear to be on the current menu. In addition, I do go, should I order a la carte or the tasting menu.
Also, for those who weren't blown away by their meal there, I would love to hear alternative venues that have similar atmosphere. I like big flavors (think: Ouest's menu) and am concerned that my dinner at Annisa will be great from an atmosphere and service perspective but fall short of the gut-pleasing flavors I prefer. I'm curious to hear what chefs posters think offer the best one-two combo of both bold, deeply satisfying flavors and creativity.
