We had dinner at Fig Tree Saturday night and my head is still spinning from the final bill. Whoa.
I had the seared foie gras over their hazelnut cake. It was tasty albeit expensive. The hazelnut cake was divine. The piece of FG was small for $17 and had a big vein in it that made it difficult to eat. SO had the mussels in a white wine cream sauce - these didn't impress me and sounded much better than they tasted. They didn't seem fresh. The chef was out of the duck confit tart w/ the blueberries. We were sad about that. They were also out of our wine selection. Friends had the scallop app w/ lobster butter - nice - and lamb wellington app - also good.
For dinner I had the stuffed Grateful Growers Farm pork chop which was overcooked and tough as nails to cut. It was accompanied by polenta fries which were heavenly! The haricot verts w/ bacon vinaigrette were really good as well. Other entrees at our table were good but not mind-blowing given the hefty price tag (lamb, scallops and elk).
Dessert included an amazing banana cheesecake w/ peanut butter cream - wow. Pressed coffee was good also.
The service was perfect. Our server was completely competent and made good suggestions including a glass of their sauterne to accompany my FG. The atmosphere was warm and they did an amazing restoration on this old craftsman-style home. They have outdoor seating on the front porch which looked quaint and comfy.
I'd return if they lowered their prices.
(It's good to be back to CH!!!)
