GREAT meal at the Freelance Cafe (long)

Michele Cindy | Aug 31, 2001 08:44 AM

We ended up at the Freelance Cafe in Piermont (called too late for the vegetarian menu to be prepared at Xavier's). We started with the Alsation (sp?) Onion Tart which reminded me of the flavor in really good blintzes or perogies. It was served with creme fraiche and chives. We had the bibb lettuce salad with gorgonzola. I usually like gorgonzola but the cheese was a bit to mildewey tasting for me. My entree was SO GOOD I din't bother to taste my husbands mushroom raviolli (he said it was good, more like dumplings then raviolli) highly unusual for me.
I ordered the Scallop, shrimp, lobster sauce stuffed potato. I was hesitant at 1st, sounded too bland, the waitress assured me it was very good. It was great! The potato was twice backed the top sliced off and fried in butter. the seafood was served in the potato and covered with an rich orange, pink thermador like sauce. It was the BEST dish I had in awhile. it was served with sliced peapods. Can't wait to have it again.
