We dined at Escoffier last week, the menu for which is now being served at the St. Andrew's Cafe. In Escoffier's former location will be the new restaurant, Bocuse, which is scheduled to open before next spring. I have no idea how the menu for Bocuse will compare to Escoffier, but the companion and I definitely enjoyed our recent Escoffier dinner. Service was generally pretty good. The food was also very good, although this was the least favorite of our three meals at the CIA in as many nights. They did start us out with a very nice amuse bouche, a small pork terrine with a mini gougere. It was a very nice start. My companion and I both ordered a salad special of the night, which was a lovely nicoise with lightly seared tuna over greens with some cherry tomatoes, fingerling potatoes, anchovies, and a quail egg. We both loved it. For our entrees we both chose the beef tenderloin, with crispy truffle pudding, asparagus, and port wine glazed onions. The beef was perfectly cooked, and we both loved the tarragon and foie gras sauce.
