La Table last night

Wendy Lai | Feb 3, 2003 02:54 PM

A pre-symphone dinner took us to La Table last night. Amazing parking spot right outside the door!

We didn't have time for all three courses, so we opted for entree and dessert. I had the beef cheeks, thanks to previous reports, and it was awsome. Tender, meltingly soft and flavorful, the portion wasn't too big or small, served with some baby turpis, onions and carrots, a bargain at $17. Two others had their flank steak with fingerling potatos. The flank steak was done very well, although, I can't say it was exceeding exceptional. The portion was too large for flank steak, but I guess one shouldn't complain of too much food. Another had their sea bass with mushroom. I had a few bites, and found it to be well prepared. A very strong, but not unpleasant, citrus under tone in the sauce, and the mushrooms complimented the fish well.
All of the dessert were out of this world. Unfortunately, I can't remember the names of some of the more unusual items that was ordered. I had the orange creme brulee, the carmalized sugar top had a hint of orange flavor as well as the custard itself.
Service was alright, both entree and dessert they were confused as to who ordered what. They were very accomodating to our curtin time.
Oh, and the table bread was so yummy, pumpkin seed bread, I couldn't stop eating them. On your way out, they also gave everyone a small loaf as a parting gift, nice touch.
