The meal began with an amuse bouche, a tomato salsa type creation, followed by a wonderfully light and delicious French brioche. Although it appears quite large, it was very soft and light, not filling like normal breads.
|Rack of Lamb, Yorkshire Pudding and Fontina Fondue|
Although the sable fish main was moist and satisfying, the rack of lamb with pomegranate glaze and Yorkshire pudding with fontina fondue was somewhat of a disappointment. The portion of protein was quite small and the pomegranite glaze was uneven, the sweetness of which could only be tasted on some chops, and not others. It was also over seasoned with sea salt resulting in a saltiness that overwhelmed the taste of the lamb.
Dessert was also somewhat of a let down with both desserts being overly complicated. The lemon dessert was too tart for my liking and grew more so the more I ate. The peanut brittle served with it was more of a solid than a brittle as we found it difficult to bite into or break. The chocolate dessert consisted of a sacher torte which was what it was suppose to be, a dense chocolate dessert, and an After Eight pot de creme which was overly minty that it completely overpowered the chocolate and any other items eaten after it.
Overall, the restaurant lacked the level of food and service we have come to expect from a restaurant of this caliber.
