While looking at the menu, we nibbled their house made (addicting) vegetable chips and sipped on a glass of Chenin Blanc, Saumur 2010 Domaine Gullaman ($9.75 per glass)
The rich chilled local corn soup with chorizo and pequillo pepper oil drizzled over the top and crunchy pieces of chorizo was deliciously filling ($7.50).
Knowing the chef always has it’s perks! Jean-Pierre had come to the table to say hi, and then sent out the most delicious carnaroli risotto made using lobster stock, and finished tomato concasse cooked with a rosemary sprig. The poached lobster was incredibly moist and tender. The risotto got additional flavor from the niçoise olives. A truly amazing dish! Not to be missed if on the menu.
Also delicious are the three seared New England sea scallops a top tomato concassee and drizzled with a Swiss chard pesto ($12.50)
A simple salad of mixed greens with an herb vinaigrette ($7) completed our entree.
Of course we were served incredible dark-chocolate coated truffles and jellies with our espresso. As wonderful as always!
