Friday night we ate at Les Amis. What a wonderful little gem. My wife and I ordered exactly the same thing which is something that never happens. Wonderful Lamb Chops for the entree. Our apps were very good also, I just can't recall what they were. Had the sorbet trio for dessert...Fromage blanc, white peach and plum...all very yummy. Service was very good and the dining room was serene and quiet. just what we needed after a long flight and a busy day.

Saturday night(wedding anniv.) The Dining Room. A perfect evening began as soon as we walked in the door and we're greeted with Happy Anniversary! We did the nine course chefs menu. Before we even got to the courses there were three or four amuses. What astounded me was that each course was the same yet different for the two of us...i.e. we each had lobster but for each of us the preperation was different. Essentially it was like an 18 course tasting. Wonderful.

Last night was at Luella. We were a bit wary as they advertise kids night on Sundays but we saw no children. The tuna tacos were good if a bit goopy. Entrees were the best...scallop ravioli with black truffle oil and a cassoulet. dessert was banana creme pie, delicious.

Service at all restaurants was excellent. Sorry that I can't find anything negative to say but I would really have to nitpick.
