Coco500 - semi-long

Monty | Jul 16, 2005 12:30 AM

There have been a number of posts about this place so via Open Table we had a 7:00 reservation tonight. Arrived early and were seated with no problem. A couple of glasses of excellent Spanish Albarino was ordered and arrived quickly. The menu was full of wonderful sounding things to order. So, fried green beans, duck liver pate, duck proscrutto with shaved fennel salad and the flatbread with cheese and herbs. Not one complaint about this bunch, all were outstanding. All plates were cleaned. The flatbread was really good, but really can't say that much better than the other items. The duck proscrutto was a bit skimply but not a big deal.

So, on to the prawns a la Plancha with heirloom peppers and the stuffed quail. Ordered the prawns just to see what an heirloom pepper was. It was either like or was a banana pepper and was wonderful, very little heat and great flavor. Oh, the prawns were very nice also, prepared perfectly, not tough or rubbery at all. The quail was simply wonderful, could have eaten several of them. Two glasses of a nice Italian reservo classico with this.

To finish, a fresh berry summer pudding and it was yummy, full of a lots of different berries

As we were walking out my wife said, "this could easily become my new favorite place to eat." I really couldn't disagree.

Let's see 4 appetizers, 2 entrees and dessert plus 4 glasses of wine, oh, and a coffee, $100 on the nose. Seemed like a good deal to us. And, no complaints whatsoever about the service, it was perfect.

I would suggest reservations as we saw any number of walk ins sent packing.
