Service was excellent- we also received a few amuse bouche* which were delicious. The plates were well balanced and Chef's recommendation for wine paired excellently with both dishes.

* Amuse bouche: An amuse-bouche [amyzbuʃ] or amuse-gueule [amyzɡœl] is a single, bite-sized hors d’œuvre.[1] Amuse-bouches are different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but, when served, are done so according to the chef's selection alone. These, often accompanied by a complementing wine, are served as a little tingler for the taste budsboth to prepare the guest for the meal and to offer a glimpse into the chef's approach to cooking.
The term is French, literally translated to "mouth amuser". The plural form is amuse-bouche or amuse-bouches.[2]
