We had to make a difficult choice for last night's celebration dinner: Le Bec Fin, Lacroix, the Fountain, or Vetri.
We chose LBF and were we glad!
This place is outstanding. We have dined at the other places I named and they all were very good, but last night's experience outdid them all.
The place is beautiful and elegant, as it always was. The guys were required to wear jackets, but not ties.
The food was unbelievable. Every dish was creative and delicious, with interesting combinations of tastes and flavors. Our oohs and ahs could be heard up and down Walnut Street.
The service was marvelous yet comfortable and unobtrusive.
The extras were fantastic, from the canapes to the candy assortment that followed dessert.
We all had the $85 four-course menu, which was plenty of food. You can read the menu online; it changes frequently.
There is a huge wine list. Nothing is cheap, but the wine we chose ($65 a bottle) pleased us all.
I can't remember being so excited about a dinner. Can't wait for an occasion to go back!
