I went for the shellfish dish. I’m a big shellfish fan.
Mussels, clams, and lobster with curry leaf that was served over French toast! Yes, French toast...
It was so good. I thought about eating the shells.
My wife got the special.
It was monkfish with two sauces, plantains, and popcorn. Yes, I said popcorn!
She said hers was the best. I disagreed. 😆
However, the star of the show for me was the 2016 Cidre Bouché de Normandie from Etienne Dupont.
It’s an unfiltered, unpasturerized cider but does have sulfites.
It has a slightly phenolic but apple aroma with medium to high carbonation. The taste is apple and tart but definitely phenolic-forward. It has wonderful tannins and astringency that leave you yearning for the next sip. If you can find a 2016, I’d strongly recommend it.
