It was a busy convention week and few dining options remained, but we really lucked out when we chose Rue 127. We loved the creativity the chef showed in combining unique flavors and textures. Classic selections were served with a twist that made the meal very memorable. Steamed mussels were in a creamy aoli sauce and served with seasoned pomme frite for dipping. Scallops were served on a bed of fennel puree, with grilled leeks/fennel and a light grapefruit salad. My husband loved the combination of grouper with a pickled mustard condiment. The bread coating on the fried oysters was a bit too heavy...could only get the taste of actual oyster on the largest one. We enjoyed speaking with the chef, who has a local farm for the produce and steeps numerous liqueurs. These are used both in cooking and in unique cocktail options. The restaurant is located in a quaint home, with tables set up in rooms and a side hallway. We found our hallway table-for-two to be cozy and intimate. Half-price special on some wines didn't hurt. Definitely worth the price of a cab ride!
