Came back 1 year after and the food and service are still great! The Duck in a can is still our goto dish. Garlic Foie Gras is awesome. Heck everything is good and drinks aren’t bad either.

We had the Foie Gras Nigiri to start and then the special of the evening, a pork shank braised in wine with risotto. It was an amazing meal -- the flavor combinations are so artfully combined that one tends to believe that Picard is some...More
