Thanks to Janet, my birthday was celebrated last night at lemaire, and it was delightful. The exceptional service, pristine surroundings and valet parking added to the affair. My husband's lamb was generous, lean and rare; my grouper moist and tasty with an interesting sauce, my nephew's filet tender and perfectly cooked.Everyone was pleased. It's unfortunate folks aren't required to dress properly anymore, but the clientel was mostly upscale.
When asked about the future renovation, the concierge said it had been postponed several times, but they wanted the restaurant downscaled to have a large bar, and outside dining. I hate to see it full of noisy, boisterous overalcoholed types creating yet another obnoxious Richmond venue!
