We found L'Ecrivain to be a balanced blend of top notch cuisine efficiently served with a refreshing absence of pomposity. I was surprisingly pleased with the mushroom consomme starter, despite the fact that I don't much care for mushrooms. My husband declared the foie gras - a favorite of his - excellent. We opted for down home entree choices of beef and chicken. These ordinary sounding dishes were anything but. I wish I could remember what the chicken was served with because the result was a combination of flavors that was possibly the best I've had.
We had a pre-dinner cocktail and a bottle of sancerre. The bill was pretty hefty, but we felt the experience was worth it.
