Having a sitter and never having been to Ludivine, we decided to hit the bar area and take advantage of their Monday evening blue plate special. With a limited menu, every Monday the bar features a different burger and a few featured appetizers (half off 5 - 7 pm).
Getting there early, around 5:30, there were only 3 other patrons having after work beverages. We sat at the bar and were promptly greeted by the bartender. Our first round of drinks was prompt, however, the bone marrow appetizer we ordered seemingly took forever (especially given the lack of patronage at this time). Perhaps the dish takes a while to prepare, but if so that should be mentioned. An appetizer usually comes out quicker than our bone marrow did. That said, the portion was significant and the flavor even larger. We had never had bone marrow, but are glad we took the chance and tried it at Ludivine. We also split the blue plate burger and truffle fries, which honestly was one of the better burgers we've had lately.
Other than being put off by how long it took to get our appetizer, overall the atmosphere, service and kitchen execution of Ludivine has us interested enough to try and make it back to give the regular dining room a chance!
