Cafe d'Alsace

I had dinner at Cafe d'Alsace last night, and I had a wonderful experience! Although the posts here have been very mixed to negative, I decided to try it anyway since it's in my new neighborhood. Service was very attentive throughout the meal. I started with the tart flambe which is a mini-pizza with cheese, carmelized onions and bacon -- wonderful combination. I had to leave a piece to save room for the wonderful duck breast with raspberries, mixed salad, potatoes with onions, mushrooms and bacon, and mixed vegetables (string beans, pea pods and carrots). Everything was delicious! I had no room for dessert. I had two glasses of a German Riesling (not too expensive $10 a glass). I'm definitely looking forward to a return visit. We arrived before 7 without a reservation, and were seated immediately. The restaurant filled in by the time we left at 8, with a nice mix of patrons of all ages. I'm glad I tried Cafe d'Alsace!
