The first night I went to Biga, I was not feeling well. I did fine on an exquisite salad, some San Pellegrino, and a peach sorbet. My guest ate very lightly too. But our service was above impeccable, caring, not-gushy, and the food, excellent.
So I went back last night with two guests and an appetite. We all ordered different things to be able to try a broad selection, and they were accomodating: the three mains came out split on our plates, so no need to fuss.
Highlights of the night? Pork loin that had an incredible smoky something with it, a side of asparagus and mushrooms with cream (yes, I normally run from the cream, but here it was right), the Texan beet salad (which had pulled me through on my first visit) and the foie gras starter.
The wine list was varied with interesting choices on it, and not exorbitantly priced.
All told, a dinner that far surpassed expectations, just the way I like that. Cheap? No way, but who wants cheap anyway!
