Our dinner yesterday was excellent:

Garlic soup - a summer broth flavorful with shrimp and egg yet the garlic was delicate, not hit-me-over-the-head aromatic. A Basque sort of thing, the flavors came through only after the soup cooled to warm, worth waiting for.

Duck Breast - Excellent, tender, and plenty of it. Good sauce reduction on the plate with a pleasant array of veg's, from almost al dente to soft, flavorful sliced onion.

My friend had an appetizer of oysters on a sort of fish porridge - it put a big smile on his mug.

Orange blossom beignets were warm and pleasant - coffee had citrus notes as it should.

We ran into one of Fringal's founding fathers at the next table leading to a spirited discussion of whether our famous Mayor will run successfully for any office at end of term, or if he'll be a Plumpjack kind o' guy - with temps in the upper 70's, a very satisfying visit - Piperade's staff was welcoming and attentive. Could we ask for more?
