Wilfrid Posted March 17 Author Share Posted March 17 Presented with the menu, no clam bellies of course. I asked my server if there were any specials. She told me about a scallop dish. I asked directly if they had any clam bellies. She paused and considered. "I think we might. Yes, I think we do." I asked if she wanted to check with the kitchen. "No," she said, "I'm sure we do." And they did and they were very good. I also ate some impeccable fried chicken, a huge portion, and several cheeses. When they arrived, the server said she'd tell me what they were. I pointed and said, "Well that's the Red Rock." "Now I'm intimidated," she said, and grabbed for her notes. Food aside, the two big hits of the evening were the room and the service. It's one of the great dining rooms in the country of course, and much longer than I remembered. It was packed. I had a small table at the far end, but that meant I could see the whole length of the room. The service was spectacularly good. I'll just highlight one thing. The two sommeliers actively bus drinks from the bar to the table as well as doing standard sommelier stuff. I usually order BTG these days and I can't tell you often my food has been served, I can see my drink, already poured, sitting on the bar waiting for my server to pick it up. And my server of course is taking orders from a table of six. They've fixed that here. A good night out and not crazy expensive despite champagne. In the $150 region. 1 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
