This review covers two meals, one in April and the other in September 2011. Both were extraordinarily interesting to this foodie and both featured most extensively raw materials from the Saaremaa islands of Estonia. The quality of the preparation was very high. Ditto presentation. There is an excellent and extensive wine list, fairly priced. On my first visit, I enjoyed a solitary tasting dinner in the glass conservatory; every dish was both distinctive and yet accessible. The breads from the kitchen were chewy and spectacular; the butter was locally churned. The second dinner I enjoyed at Alexander was one for a party of either, one of whom was vegetarian and two were small children. The kids got appropriate dishes and the vegetarian pronounced herself both impressed and well satisfied. The rest of us were glad to have the full palate of possibilities of that fine kitchen open to us. The wines provided, including a great bottle of champagne, were excellent and the wine list was pretty long. The pace of the dinners were leisurely, but appropriately so for a comfortable group of friends with lots of catching up to do. The larger dinner was served in a private dining room of great charm. I also took two buffet breakfasts that featured local products (kama jahu! fish! local pasture eggs! homemade jams and preserves! on and on!!) In addition, the group had an alfresco luncheon, set up and served on our whim, with terrific offerings negotiated with the kitchen. What a place!
