We booked a table for New Year's Eve, for 9:00 p.m. When we arrived we had a drink at the bar, and were amazed at the eclectic décor. It was fantastic.
When they took us through to the restaurant, we were seated at a bar right at the kitchen, so that we were watching the chefs work. It was almost like a Chef's Table.
But then the food. I don't think there are enough superlatives to describe the food. We started out sharing an appetizer of Warm Goat Cheese, Roasted Garlic, Sweet Peppers and Tomatoes with Bruschetta. This was 'to die for'.
After that, the server brought freshly baked warm bread, accompanied by a dish with olive oil, a crab & tomato dip (we think); and a sweet pepper mix. That was also beautiful.
Walter ordered the Bouillabaisse, which looked amazing, and he said it was. I ordered the Hot Cajun Spiced Penne Pasta with Chicken, which was also amazing. As Walter said, 'the flavors were so striking and so complemented each other'.
Then Walter ordered the Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake. I had a taste, and I have never fallen in love with a dessert before. You will see on the photo, the presentation was spectacular, and the taste matched!
We ordered a latte and a cappuccino, and even the coffee was fantastic.
We had a chat with Jon Reimer, one of the Executive Chefs, whose photo is below. A really cool guy, and he was very appreciative of our comments.
I must say, we ate way too much, but we will definitely be recommending the Collectors Café and Gallery to everyone and anyone.
THIS IS THE BEST MEAL WE HAVE HAD IN YEARS!!!!
Thank you, Jon Reimer and James Molnar. What a fantastic find!
