Visited Recette for the first time earlier this week. We both came in with reasonably high expectations -- based on recommendations from friends and reviews from different critics -- and I have to say it exceeded them.
We had about a dozen dishes, which they broke up into five courses for us -- raw dishes, hot snacks, pasta, protein, and dessert. WIth a bottle of wine and tip for 2, it was about $250, just about what we'd have paid for the 5-course tasting and we were able to try many more dishes. I would, and will, gladly go back. The Mondays with Jesse dinners they do on the 2nd Monday of each month is definitely on my radar now.
