Deux Cheminees - Thanks

We went last night for our anniversary dinner. Excellent choice. What a warm restaurant; great, quiet service. Without going into a detailed review, we had:

amuse-bouche of pumpkin swirl cake

Course 1:
Her: Smoked Salmon
Me: Pumpkin soup. Creamy, slight taste of ginger, rich. Well done.

Course 2:
Her: salad with bleu cheese and roasted nutes
Me: Roast stuffed little quail. Excellent.

amuse of warm cider

Course 3:
Her: Roast duck a'la orange. V. good.
Me: Venison tenderloins with spaetzle dumplings. Venison: very good, but it was one of those "once you've had one bite, you know how the rest will taste" things, and the dumplings had great texture but little taste themselves.

Her: Grand marnier (souffle? custard? I forget. It was cold. And it was creamy and good)
Me: Chocolate crepe with espresso ice cream, in chocolate syrup. V. good. I was full.

Price: $200, plus tip (no wine). Maybe a *tad* bit high, but the decor was great, the food was solid and I have no complaints about the service. It'll be on a "once every year or so" rotation.
