We celebrated my wife's great birthday in this restaurant, full of surprise and elegance, especially if you are in a social mood and willing to socialize also with people outside your own company. Great food, great treat, not cheap, but something to remember.

5 or 6 chefs create multiple appetizers, main dishes, and deserts, in appropriate portions. Very fresh ingredients. Time to meet your fellow patrons before dinner and at an "intermission". Very memorable dinner.

I have never been to the other place, we always have gone to Carte Blanche and will continue to do so. Chef Dennis and Glenn, the sommelier, are a hard act to follow and make your evening one to remember. I hope this helps!
