Django report

Sylvia G | Jan 31, 2005 12:56 PM

I am pleased to report that contrary to what I read in some recent comments, Django is alive and well - and as good, if not better, than ever.

Four of us had dinner at Django last week. We all thought it was superb.

I wish I could remember what was in the amuse bouche. I know there was goat cheese involved, but I don't remember the rest. All I know is that I wanted to keep eating it for the rest of my life.

I tasted my husband's Vermont Cheddar soup (with French ham profiteroles in it), and I would definitely order it next time; exquisite. I did love my choice: the Hickory Salmon Brochette and Smoked Trout Whole Wheat Crepe, with trout caviar, tiny potato pieces, etc. (I have a copy of the menu in front of me.) There were 8 choices of appetizer, and they all sounded terrific. Difficult choice!

The entree choice was also difficult, but I ordered the Roasted Bison Loin with potato and horseradish cream sauce, and it was marvelous - every bit as good as the bison dish I had at Lacroix recently.
My husband and the other guy raved about the pheasant breast and pulled pheasant leg meat, which came with spatzle, mushrooms, and again - etc. I tasted it; really delicious.

I pulled myself away from the Chocolate Almond Terrine for dessert. I get that every time, and I do love it, but I wanted a change. The Apple Trio was delightful, especially the apple-maple sorbet - though I would probably go back to that chocolate terrine.

Prices are mid-twenties for most entrees, between 9 and 11 for most appetizers, anad about 7 for desserts.

We sat toward the back of the room. Though the restaurant was full, the noise level was okay; we could talk.

I know some people have expressed disappointment with Django lately. As you see, we had a different experience. Being BYOB kept the price affordable.

There are many pleasant BYOB's around - and we enjoy them - but Django and Marigold Kitchen are a cut above, and we are grateful for their presence on the restaurant scene.
