The best food I have ever eaten in the United States....and I am a 53 year old American! French perfection without the heavy cream sauces. From the fresh baked bread, celery potato foam topped with caviar,roasted lobster with asparagus tips,duck ravioli,filet mignon with a homemade potato chip bridge to a roasted shallot it was an explosion of flavors,tastes and textures. A New Years Eve epicurean fantasy.
I have never bothered to write a review in my life but this place IS Paris on Longboat. The meal was a fixed, 8 course menu. Each and every course was magnificent.
The evening flowed. The courses were brought just when we were ready for them. The wait staff timing was impeccable. We got to the restaurant at just before 8:00 p.m. and at 11:20 were finished. The time went so quickly. It was just a magical evening with fabulous food. My favorite course was the duck ravioli with a rich, but light red wine sauce. We were also delighted with the cheese course. The cheese was St. Marcelin, served with a raisin and currant toast with a simple, lightly dressed salad. Everything was done to perfection
