Upperline rises to its own reputation

Wow! This place provides a culinary experience beyond excellence. The crispy sweetbreads over mushroom ragout (white ragout which I’ve never seen before) are perfect. The bread pudding (although not as light as I prefer) has a pecan toffee sauce that cannot be resisted. The speckled trout meuniere boasts a truly delicate meuniere and arrives on a sizzling platter bathed in aroma. Perfectly cooked. The black drum was just as good. We chose a wine by the glass, Villa Mt. Eden Chardonnay Coastal (1999), but found out you can bring your own bottle for a corkage fee of $20. The restaurant is not large, which may contribute to its reported consistency. It certainly measured up to its reputation this Saturday. Cannot wait to go back with certain foodies.
