Le Coq au Vin review AND...what's your fave (authentic) ethnic restaurant?

Luna4 | May 4, 2008 03:39 PM

Went to Le Coq au Vin last night for a graduation dinner. Was absolutely amazing! Was very crowded but we got seated right away (had a reservation). Their french bread was delicious, had a flavor that was very subtle and a perfectly crisp crust. I had the Soupe a L’Oignon (onion soup) as a starter, and it was perfect- just enough of everything and the flavors were amazing. My fiance had the Soufflé Au Fromage (cheese souffle), and again, it was excellent. Very light with great flavor. Four our entrees, we had half portions (a great deal if you're low on cash) of the Aubergine Bayou Teche (basically pieces of fried eggplant covered in crab meat and shrimp and smothered in a spicy cream sauce, some veggies) and the Fletan (roasted halibut with a delicious watermelon salad). Both were excellent- the eggplant was so good, I'm going to have to try and recreate it at home. For dessert, the chocolate raspberry souffle, of course! Not too rich, great texture, and a great end to the meal. HIGHLY recommend this place- we are definitely going back.

And on to my question- what are your favorite authentic ethnic restaurants in the area? We would like to try foods from any and all cuisines. Thanks!
