When we arrived at the restaurant, the esteemed chef himself, Guy Savoy greeted us at the entrance.
In the dining room we ate in, they offered the ladies each a small stool they could place their purses on. The wine list came with it's own podium. We had a bottle of 1985 Chateau Lafite Rothschild with dinner- probably the best wine I've ever had.
We knew it was going to be good from the start when we got the bread. Despite it's odd shape, it was amazing- a perfect crust, and delicious.
They started us off with several amuse bouches. The first was like a slider in a stick- a mini grilled beef inside a small toasted bread.
They also gave us a small container with vegetables like parsnips, poured some soup in it and then you pushed some cayenne into the mix for a "shot" of soup.
Afterwards, you could lift up the "cup" and underneath was another small bite on a taro chip.
For our starters, we were able to try a good variety of items, however the main ingredient prominent in all of them were black truffles- wow- so extravagant. I got the black truffle risotto.
We also got to try the black truffle soup- definitely a more stronger flavor of the truffle in this presentation. This came out with a cinnamon brioche.
Redneckhunter and I, for our second courses, got the special, and big surprise, more black truffles. The dish was a turbot layered with truffles. It came with some little veggies and foam.
For dessert, I wanted to have something light, so I got the citrus plate, with tea used to steam the items on the plate.
