CulinAriane in Montclair

Anyone looking for a great place to have dinner in the Montclair area would be hard pressed to beat this place. Gracoius host, incredible chef, attentive service, and proper wine glasses (it's a BYO - BONUS!).

Diiner on Friday night was fantastic.

Apps - GF had a great salad of organic baby greens, caramelized figs, oregon blue, and aged balsamic. I had cornmeal encrusted oysters with a "dipping sauce" of horseradish. The oysters were so nicely cooked, stayed nice and light. Her main was a pasta of red chile ribbons, mushrooms, English peas, sweet pepper threads, and Parmigiano Reggiano. She is a vegetarian and this is their only veg friendly dish but she said she would have it again in a heartbeat. My main was a lamb dish. I'm a lamb junkie and this was a great fix. Beautifully cooked, incredibly tender, and exceptional taste. The preperation was pretty straight forward but the minted yogurt and mild curry was the perfect accompaniment.

No room for dessert and what a shame because it looked like the people around were certainly enjoying what they had.

can't wait to go back.
