La Cachette report

Zoe | Sep 9, 2002 04:28 PM

Out of town reli fancied French food so we made an impromptu last minute decision to go to La Cachette - warm greetings to a room only about a quarter full (it was Wednesday). Almost as soon as we looked at the menu, the owner/chef, Jean Francois Meteigner came out and went over all the choices with us - very very fun. He suggested an appetizer of the sweetbreads (it was listed as an entree and he also gave a big vote to the Scottish hare). Appetizers all v.good - I had snails in puff pastry with a solid garlicy sauce, the others had foie gras, sweetbreads and a squash soup. Entrees: Scottish hare which had a lip smacking sauce with a port base (2 portions); halibut topping a vegetable puree cake, I had the soft shell crab - two large babies sitting on a gratin of vegetables. Shared raspberry brulet (sp?) for dessert. Good wine - $75 for a Kenwood cab. Take on the evening - gracious host, pretty room, warm service and A+++ food. We'll be back. (About $60 a head)
