"Laissez LE BON temps rouler!" Lincoln Road

Pardon my French. Le Bon Restaurant is like a good lover. You can always count on her, she never disappoints. Last night she was a vision of beet red succulent lips and creamy white supple flesh. Wednesday wine by the bottle is half price, so I paid her a visit. I started off with a most refreshing marinated beet salad with mixed greens, apples and lemon-beet vinaigrette, just the ticket for a hot muggy day. That was followed by one of my favorites, Florida grouper stuffed with lump crabmeat and served with a cognac cream sauce. Had fish been served at the last supper I’m convinced that Jesus would have ordered Dreams chardonnay from Jermann. The pairing was diVine. The consistent quality of the food, always fresh and perfectly cooked, and service, always friendly and professional are hallmarks of Le Bon. You see the same people year after year in the management and staff positions who speak favorably about their jobs. I can’t help but think it all starts from the top, namely Graziano Sbroggio. No one has had as much success on the Road as he has. From the unobtrusive efficient busboys to welcoming gracious manager Lera, the place is a well-oiled operation. Needless to say, totally satisfied, I left with a smile on my face.
