This was a repeat visit and we were impressed. Saturday was quiet (holiday weekend) but enough people in to give some ambiance. Service was knowledgable and attentive with the owners in the restaurant mingling(and in the kitchen) Total bill including service was $115 (wifes birthday) but it felt like value at the end of a very pleasant evening
I started with Mussels, a good portion in a wonderful roasted garlic sauce, very nice table bread. My wife had the scallops again very tasty.
Entrees were the duck breast (cooked as ordered) succulent with a nice reduction, well presented around mashed potatoes and some interesting "al dente" veggies. Red Snapper,the other entree, again with Mashed potatoes and veggies got the thumbs up too. We had a bottle of the La Crema reserve Pinot Noir which was very drinkable and not excessively priced at $36. Deserts were a chocolaty excess for me and a simple ice cream (not on the menu but no problem for my wife)The owners came out and chatted (the fact they came with some complimentary artisan cheeses and glasses of Sauterne definately helped win my favor)and told me about the catering business and that they run some tasting events (I'm now on the mailing list) and that for the posers and oenophiles they keep some of the big Reidel glasses in the back plus a selection of super wines not on the standard list. This looks like an establishment we will be going back to with the gang to test their culinary limits!
