Went to Mike A's last weekend for dinner. The interior is lovely and welcoming. The servers and staff were outstanding on all levels including attentiveness, efficiency, courtesy, accuracy. They even raised the heat a bit when they noticed we were cold. The wine list is very good, very high end in some cases. We ordered the Seared Sea Scallop app, Lobster en Barigoule and Aged Peking Duck for main courses, Chocolate Soufflé for dessert. Descriptions of food taken from their menu:The scallops (Charred Grapefruit, Shaved Fennel, Rabarbaro Glass, Long Pepper, Vanilla Oil) The lobster dish (Braised Artichoke and Thumbelina Carrots, Red Quinoa, Compressed Grapes, Light Barigoule Broth), the duck (Smoked Jelly, Braised Chestnut, Turnip, Duck Soubise, Confit Cigarello, Liver Mousse, Tangerine). Everything was delicious. The food is something one might see inBon Appetit magazine. More high-brow than we normally eat with the smaller size portions, the foamy 'broth' and the jelly. I would not like to eat this way daily but it made for a lovely dinner and a relaxing evening. It is expensive ($42 for the lobster, $34 for the duck) but as a special night out, it's worth the splurge.
