What a dinner. A feast for the eyes and an exquisite delight for the tastebuds. I'd read about this restaurant specializing in fresh foraged herbs and edible flowers, so we decided to try it. Better yet, most of the choices on the menu were either gluten free or could be altered to be so. Gary's salad arrived--a wonderful mix of fresh figs, wild greens, and flowers. My rare grilled duck breast with wild berries and minted rice was outstanding. Everything tasted intensely itself, if that makes any sense: berries were essence of berries; minted rice was creamy, lightly minted and fresh; the duck breast was crisp on the outside, melting tender inside. Etc. We returned a few days later and had their regular fixed-price lunch (13.50€), which was quite nice but not exceptional. Next time, we'll do the luncheon "flower menu"--it'll cost more (24€) but I'm sure it will be worth it.
