A week before Christmas, 2015, we went to a very quiet Jo Le restaurant for dinner--one of the best we've ever enjoyed.
We started with glasses of bubbly, then had four-course tasting menus, with wine pairings...
foie gras (paired with a sauternes; she proclaimed the dish "perfect")
rabbit torchon (it had been deboned, butterflied, then rolled for cooking; there were persimmons in the dish as well, made into a sauce!)
Meyer Lemon panna cotta
eggplant over bok choy with south-Asian flavor accents
(one) quail that had been battered and deep fried; roasted squash was involved, too.
sopapillas with a honey dressing.
the sommelier brought the bottles to the table and gave us capsule history/biographies of each wine and winemaker--and provided (on request) a written list of what we'd had.
it all came to $300, roughly--well spent.
