We can't remember when we have enjoyed a meal more than our "Grande Dame" chef's 10-course tasting menu. Every dish was perfectly prepared, both in the balance and freshness of the flavors and the appearance. But unlike other tasting menus at other restaurants, the flavors were the stars of each dish (as opposed to sensationalized appearance). And the numerous tiny gifts from the chef in between each course were fun and wonderful, and gave us different tastes and novel preparations as well as previews of the next dish, but in a different form or format. And when we got to the final "meat" courses (squab and beef), instead of portions too big to finish, these were perfectly sized and perfectly prepared 3-4 bites of meat. The wine pairing was perfect too, as was the service. We were seated outside on a lovely, cool evening, which added to our pleasant experience (hint, bring a wrap to use until they turn on the heaters). The goat cheese macaroon after the meats and before the desserts is still a fond memory. We appreciated that the service charge was built into the price of the meal. We absolutely recommend this splurge.
