FOOD. Above, you will notice the gracious Pan Roasted Organic Salmon chillin on some Asparagus, Chanterelles, Potatoes, and a Lobster Beurre Blanc. Yeah, the asparagus, chanterelles (mushrooms), and potatoes were great and all. But, besides the fact that the Salmon was cooked to ambrosial perfection, the sauce was pure happiness. The Lobster Beurre Blanc, French for "White Butter", is a butter sauce with a vinegar or white wine reduction. The buttery, rich flavor of the sauce made the salmon taste even more amazing.
I ordered the Steak Frites with Béarnaise sauce. You can choose Maître D' butter as a substitute if you'd like. Béarnaise is a buttery, yolk-based sauce. It is traditionally eaten with steak. There are three things I love about this dish. 1. The steak was legendary. It was tender, juicy, and cooked evenly throughout. It disappeared in minutes. 2. The fries. They're unjustifiably good. What type of sorcery was used to make these fries? Perfectly crisp without any greasy oils. It tastes as if it were fried in duck fat but it was less greasy as if it were fried in peanut oil or another type of oil. And, finally, 3. LOOK AT HOW PHOTOGENIC IT IS.... it reminds me of my biceps (100% awesome, 100% of the time).
