I visited while on vacation on Napa with friends. We decided to go with a 4 course menu with wine pairing. Although I can't remember each wine paired with each dish, the sommelier did an excellent job at customizing each wine for each dish each person ordered. There is also some Amuse Bouche served making the 4 courses probably one too many as the portions are bigger than you might expect from this caliber of meal.
I started with the Asparagus soup which is served with a poached quail egg and big chunks of lobster which was paired with a Suavignon Blanc. Next I had the Warm Pig Feet, Sweetbread and Lobster Terrine paired with a Chardonnay. I thought this dish could not be topped but I was soon proven wrong. Next we all had the Lobster and Mushroom Risotto and we all opted for the $20 addition of freshly shave truffles. This was paired wonderful Burgundy. This was everything you might expect from a Truffle Lobster Risotto. I finished with the highlight of my evening which was Liberty Farm Duck Breast And Crispy Duck Confit Gateau paired with a Bordeaux. 2 large slices of duck breast cooked perfectly medium rare were served alongside a Confit of duck made from the dark meat. To top it off were a few duck tongues. This was my first experience with duck tongue. The texture was much different than I expected and I was pleasantly surprised.
All in all, one of the best meals I've ever eaten anywhere in the world and It didn't break the bank. Although they only have one Michelin Star, the service and food made me feel like I was at a 3 Michelin Star restaurant.
