We started the meal with the Steak Tartare served with toast points prepared tableside so you can have it prepared to taste, with as much or as little pepper as you want. My personal favorite on the appetizer side was the Duck and Foie Gras dish. This was the epitome of heaven on a plate for me. The duck was neither burnt nor greasy.
For my main meal I succumbed to the lamb, which somehow I managed to finish. Delicious.
Finally, for dessert we couldn't resist the Grand Marnier (I believe it was) soufle. Truly heaven. Do let them know ahead of time as this takes 20 minutes to prepare. It comes with a sauce. Hint: the more sauce, the better.
The wait staff are impeccable. Knowledgable and courteous, they whisk dishes away as required, bringing the next items to the table, but are never too visible, which helped to make this a perfect spot for a romantic evening.
P.S. I had the best cosmopolitan I've ever had here.
