Sel de la Terre - Excellent

By way of thanking Chowhounders for this recommendation, a brief report.

I dined with four companions at Sel de la Terre last night. To cut to the chase, all agreed that it was an excellent meal. Among the first courses, the Mussels Provencal were tasty and flavorful in a wonderful sauce. The Divers Scallops were, according to our companion, "perfect." A pizza was more a delivery system for the spiced chicken and olives, but enjoyable nevertheless. Main courses included a peppered venison, braised short ribs (which my wife judged superb), and a pan-grilled swordfish that was remarkable moist and flavorful. We all shared one dessert and we picked well: the chocolate creme caramel with candied orange was, all agreed, the highlight of the meal. Only complaint: the bread, which received notice in the recommendations I received in my first solicitation, was merely adequate. We speculated that Monday night may be a light staff night and they purchased, rather than baked their own. With fine wines, all in all, a delightful meal. Thanks for the recommendation.
