Where has this place been all my life?! My husband & I had driven by this secret jewel many times, but finally made the decision to have dinner there one night after looking at the menu on line. I wanted to spoil my husband with an amazing dinner as he was home for 3 weeks of R&R from Afghanistan and good food is always a PLUS when he is home for those few precious weeks. We came in on a week night and were greeted so very sweetly by Steven who was also our waiter. It turned out we were basically the only diners... Slow on a Tuesday night... Perfect! The ambiance, music and the smells from the kitchen were telling me that we had made an excellent choice for the night. From the beginning of the meal, Steven was very knowledgable of their menu and we decided to do the Pre-Fixe Dinner (Appetizer/Salad or Soup/Entree & Dessert). Steven recommended the amazing house dressing for the salad and the Beef Wellington for the meal. After the deliciously different appetizers (Smoked Salmon & Black Truffle Mouse Patte), Steven brought us a small glass of rasperry sorbet to clean our pallets and explained the reason behind it. GENIUS! The Beef Wellington was served....and suddenly I felt like I had been transported to France. I had never seen or smelled anything so aromatic and delicious....it was a piece of art! Steven spoiled us as guests, and I believe he would have done the same if the house had been packed! We were absolutely spoiled rotten by him and the chef, Francois!! And to top it off for dessert, a chocolate cake that made my husband almost shed a tear it was so good and a Creme Brulee that I'm almost certain had a hint of cayenne pepper....it blew my socks off it was SO good.
