Has anyone tried the five or six-course tasting menu newly added at La Cachette? I didn't get a chance to order it and am very curious how it is.
We dined ala carte and have to give high marks. Of all the dishes there was one gaff in that the duck breast was a bit overcooked. Not for me as I like it cooked, but more than typical for duck lovers like my wife. Not horribly but just a bit. The meat quality was tasty and the leg confit delicious.
I had the Black Cod served with risotto croquettes which was excellent. The tenderness and prep of the fish was impressive, and a light tropical sauce just perfect with it.
I had a maine lobster salad, which was very good, but trumped by the seared foie gras which was both generous and delicious.
It's nice to have some places that aren't so trendy, yet are very refined with seasoned service one can count on. The room and settings are traditional but very comfortable, and not stuffy. No surprise, it's what L'Orangerie once was.
