Four Seasons Slipping a Bit?

Susan H | May 21, 2003 09:47 AM

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, Wonderful Husband surprised me with an evening at the Four Seasons (dinner, room, breakfast). It was our first visit since Lacroix left, and the food was as good and creative as ever. We especially loved the veal two ways (tenderloin slices on top of a stewed veal that was even better, with stewed root veggies). Also had a leek soup with a caviar bridge (lovely -- caviar sitting on a crouton slice bridging the soup), "bing cherry tuna" (the color, not the fruit), and perfect grilled salmon with so many wild mushrooms we couldn't finish them all. The chocolate souffle at the end was perfect. But there were a couple of serving glitches that you don't expect at one of our premier establishments. Ed's bitter chocolate cake came without the promised lemon sorbet. My English Breakfast tea showed up as Earl Grey. We had friends at a nearby table celebrating their anniversary, and they also thought the service was not up to par (although the food was great). George Perrier was eating there with some friends - I wonder if he got better service?
