Hubby and I went to Cafe and Bar Lurcat for restaurant week - in part due to the larger selection of choices on the $30 menu. We had been there a few times when it first opened and were not impressed. The service was poor, the food was ok. I remember it being incredibly expensive for the quality.
When we were seated, I realized my server was Jonna, formerly with Masu. She expertly navigated us thru the menu and provided us smart suggestions which made us very happy. We started with the crab cake and apple/cheese salad. The crab cake was DELICIOUS! Lots of crab, little filler. The mustard sauce that accompanied it was incredible. The apple/cheese salad was good – but did not hold a candle to the crab cake. Jonna told us we need to try the bacon jam with the pork tenderloin. So happy she did because it was one of the best things I’ve had in a long while. We also had the barramundi which was delicious but a bit salty for my taste. One recommendation – get the roasted cauliflower. AMAZING! Both entrees did not come with a vegetable, so the side dish was perfect to split. We ended with the chocolate cream cake and date cake with oatmeal stout Izzy ice cream. What impressed me is the portions were the same as if you were to order of the regular menu. We were absolutely stuffed and we left feeling we got our money’s worth and more.
Any one else have experiences to share? It is only Tuesday. I am looking for another place to try!
