I've been to the original Troquet many times (now closed), but now having visited the newly opened Troquet on South Street twice, I can definitely say that it is even better than ever!

This has always been a restaurant for wine lovers, with an amazing and often surprisingly affordable wine list to peruse if you are really serious about wine. Chris Campbell knows his wines, and the wine service is perfect. If you are not into wine, don't worry, there are great affordable bottles on the list and Chris will steer you in the right direction.

But the new additions to Scott Hebert's menu are fantastic! Sure, Troquet classics like Ricotta Cavatelli with Beef Short Rib are still there (and the giant basket of butter from Normandy!). But some of the new dishes that I don't recognize from the old menu are truly excellent. Photos below are from a 5-course tasting menu + 3 cheese plate, although I didn't take very good notes about each dish (and I also can't figure out what this cost because of all the wine and split checks).

Pleasing new space too, with a good sized bar, comfortable seating, modest noise level, a private room in back, and the cellar downstairs (which we unfortunately got a tour of, resulting in additional wines we just had to try).

The King is dead! Long live the King!
