We were seated right away, I’d tried like 3 times to get a dinner reservation here. It’s impossible! Unless you eat early on a thursday night, like we did. Throughout our meal, we had the hardest time trying to get our waittress’ attention, even just to take our order and such, it was like she was trying to ignore us. Physically trying to avoid our table and avoid us calling her. We started off with an amuse bouche which was a chilled tomato soup, I wasn’t a fan because I felt that tomato was a little bit too acidic to begin a meal with and especially to cleanse a palate with.
My friend was really in the mood for oysters and so she started off with a trio of raw oysters: Cucumber lemon granita, Tangerine salsa and plain. I sampled the tangerine salsa on the raw oyster and thought it was really good. My friend finished off her plate with a huge smile.
I started off with the beer battered crab beignets with four different remoulades. I really enjoyed this. The beignets were perfect! crunchy on the outside, juicy inside and the remoulades were amazing!
I had the filet mignon with truffle butter. I saw lots of good dishes on this menu but decided that this one was I was in the mood for. The filet mignon was pretty good.
My friend had the chargrilled oysters which came out on a salt rock. The salt rock was super impressive. The chargrilled oysters were pretty tasty too.
We got the banana foster souffle which you can see is on fire!! It was a vanilla souffle with rum, and bananas foster sauce. But if I had known that a whole chestful of truffles and small treats came included with the meal, I would’ve skipped the souffle.
