when it came to selecting a wine bottle, i decided on cote du rhone, and picked the cheapest bottle for economical reasons. it was delicious, so maybe price was a good deciding factor!
my father ordered half a dozen raw oysters, which i'm not usually such a big fan of, but these were delicate, and refreshing. i liked the accompanying sauce.
i shared their green salad with my sweethearts. it had gorgonzola, spiced pecans, roasted garlic, and i thought it was a flavor explosion, far exceeding my green salad expectations.
for the main course i ordered game hen, which was perfectly cooked. my sweetheart ordered the swordfish special, which was also delicious.
for desserted, we ordered pot de creme au chocolat and rasberry pecan torte (which was more interesting than delicious, but i have high pastry standards). the chocolate was rich and enticing. we washed it down with courvoisier. all in all, a successful outing.
