It's a tough act to follow when the night before you have had a truly titillating adventure for your olfactory and taste senses. Some might say we played it safe by sticking to Donald Link's restaurant group. I say we had heightened expectations, and they were met by our meal at Herbsaint. Though the decor was a bit Spartan, the service and food more than distracted us from looking around at what was covering the walls. Although I expect it at a service oriented place like a restaurant, the staff doesn't always know their menu or have an opinion in many cases. At Herbsaint, it's just the opposite - our waiter was well-versed with regard to the wine and menu. He was able to steer each of us towards items that we would enjoy based on conversations with us throughout various stages of the meal. Our group of 6 was unanimously impressed from appetizer to dessert. One of the mouth-watering heavy hitters was the muscovy duck leg confit with dirty rice and citrus gastrique. Not only was the presentation beautiful, the flavor was incredible. I didn't say it was healthy, but I was on vacation, and the only thing I regret is not licking the plate!
