This was for lunch and what a wonderful lunch it was.
The place was busy with beautiful people, most dressed in business attire.
We were well attended throughout lunch, the service impeccable.
As for the food itself, we went for the table d'hôte.
We were served a teaser as it was called, a perfectly flavored bisque, buttery and perfectly seasoned.
Following such, we were served out appetizers, yum. A potage butternut and mussel, again, so creamy without the heaviness. And than the foie gras plate, a perfect nugget of the rich foie gras served with a fruit compote, the only thing that surprised me a bit on the foie gras was that it was cold enough I could not spread it on the thin crouton served with it, but we did clear our plates.
I was really excited by then to receive our main plates and than again, everything was so beautiful, for myself, I had the rabbit confit, the meat was not dark as I often see, but so fall off the bone tender! The accompaniments were all as delicious as nothing was left on the plate. And than the short rib served over a few perfectly braised vegetables. That rib looked as if it came from a dinosaur, large, thick and the glaze dark and savory, all in all, it was mind altering experience.
I know now that I have waited too long to go to Europea and plan on returning with a few of my friends I know will really enjoy it as much I did.
