Sorrel

Tried Sorrel tonight and were very pleased. Place was empty when we arrived (around 7) but bustling by the time we left--they were turning people away. Service was extremely attentive--the (owner?) came by several times to check on us, and recommended a wonderful Courbieres wine. We thought the ambiance was lovely, and they were playing really great french pop music. We had the $25 prix fixe--a creamy mushroom soup and the smoked trout for starters, both very good. We both had the Coq au Vin for a main, served over spaetzle, it was delicious--very homey and a great fall/winter dish. And the desserts were lucious--a pot au chocolate (which was better and chocolatier than 360's, which we had just last week); and a poached pear with ginger and chocolate. All came to about $85 for two. Definitely a similar feel to 360 but the al a carte menu is slightly more extensive and the wine list slightly less esoteric. One odd touch--tiny paper napkins--which seemed out of place in such a place. (I wouldn't normally bring up such a silly, minor thing but both my husband and I seperately noted it!)
