|We wanted to take a picture in our fancy duds. The doorman asked us if we wanted him to take a picture, but it was too cold down there and I didn't want to take off my jacket. Hehe.|
We decided to live it up and each get a five-course meal. We did pretty well picture-wise, but I think there are a couple of courses missing. It was nice because you could interchange what you wanted to eat. If you didn't want something from the soup/salad course you could order a second item from the appetizer menu. This is what I did. I did take a picture of the menu, but the words are too small to read exactly what is in each dish. Luckily, I know how to do basic conversions on my computer and was able to change their pdf menu into a jpg so I can put it as a picture on this post.
|Nick: Burgundy Snails in bone marrow gratin|
|Nick: Triple T Ranch Tempura duck egg on sweetbreads pancake|
|Allison: Goat cheese tatin|
|Allison: Seared Hudson Valley Foie Gras|
|Better picture of the two parts to the Foie Gras...also known as a heart attack on plate. Can you believe that some poor little duck was fed so much that its liver got this big?|
|Nick: Butterfish on asparagus (the night's special)|
|Allison: Butter poached lobster over pumpkin ravioli|
This was my least favorite dish because I wasn't fond of the pumpkin.
|Nick: Duck breast with duck tongue.|
|Allison: Roasted rack of lamb|
|Allison: Artisan three cheese plate|
Nick got the Creme Brulee cake, but I think by then we had consumed enough champagne to remember to take a picture of it. We brought our own bottle of Mumm's Demi Sec and finished the whole thing. We didn't want to waste it! I was pretty impressed when woman corking our bottle immediately noted that she rarely sees the Demi Sec. I was like "Wow! This gal knows her stuff!" because it is not sold in stores and only at the winery. I just hope we tipped enough at the end of the night because our servers were extremely nice and very helpful.
If you would like to spend a small fortune for some really good food, I highly recommend La Folie.
