If is not often that you come across a restaurant that really produces food that is a real pleasure to taste as so often the main criteria for evaluation is the quantity of food served. As I was only going to have one course I had some of the complimentary focaccia with a slight garlic oil dip. At that point I knew I was in for a treat. I was then served a small cucumber gazpacho as a palette cleanser which was that good that I had to ask for another. I then sampled my wife's minestrone which was much richer than I expected without being over seasoned or salty (I also normally expect this to be some what watery). I was then given a lovely watermelon and raspberry juice? as another palette cleanser prior to my main course of lobster with bok choy vegetables and celery. I note the celery as I don't particularly like it. I always think it is a mark of a great chef that makes me enjoy food I don't like. If I end up eating eggplant next time then I know somethings up. Opps almost forgot the shrimp ravioli that came with the lobster which was superb. I know I was only going to have one course but then decided I needed to have a desert so I had the Panna Cotta? desert which was delightful. I left feeling like I had had such a varied and complete dining experience as though I had had a seven course meal where every ingredient had been thought through. At the end of the meal we did speak with Riz (the chef and owner) who was charming and obviously extremely accomplished. To get a meal like this would cost you twice as much anywhere else and that is not including the airfare!!
