After hearing all of your reviews and suggestions I finally made it to Gargoyles on Saturday.
It was fantastic. Apps were special of scallop cake over schestnut puree which went over very well with my dc. My spp of crayfish bisque was wonderful. It was nice to have the taste fresh tails, after getting used to frozen it was like heaven. The maple soda accompanying it was sweet yet refreshing and the pastrami reuben fritters had a hint of meatiness and caraway. It was a good melding of beignet and sandwich.
Entrees, dc loved the escolar but was not impressed with the lobster mashed potatoes. Chunks of garlic everywhere. My turducken was very good and moist, although the duck was more shredded than a solid piece. Gnocchi were very good, (maybe I would have liked them better had I not had a fantastically tender version the night before at Bon Caldo).
For dessert we split a warm gingerbread bread puding with white chocolate sauce and carrot anglaise which was the perfect ending.
Bill was apprxomately $75 (neither of us drank) and I'll be back.
Thanks for all the reccs!
