Len started with a "sweetbread Rubeun" - sweetbreads on a toasted piece of caraway brioche topped with pickled tomatoes, a creamy Jarlsberg cheese fondue and garnished with a big caper.
My pork belly and seasonal mushrooms mixed in with some potato gnocchi and braising liquid from the pork belly was to die for. Sublime!
Kathy gave me a taste of the of her duck confit ravioli in a garlic broth. Next time I will have that as my starter.
I was not denied duck for the evening thou. I had a flavorful duck served with grilled frisee and a warm melody of cherries, bacon and onion. Really intense flavors.
The Halibut dish was a pretty presentation the way it was served on a rectangular plate that was painted with a strip of tomato sauce, then a strip of avocados. The Halibut sat on top of a heirloom tomato salad. Perfectly grilled.
We definitely will go back.
