Unlike years past where we have been to restaurants that made things a touch easier on themselves by doing a set course menu (aka prix fixe)...NOtaBLE did two seatings of à la carte. TWO!! Now, for those who do not know, à la carte (pronouced /ælæˈkɑrt/) is french meaning "according to the menu". Or in layman's terms...it is a reference to a menu of items which are priced and ordered separately.
You can view the whole delectable New Year's Eve menu here.
|Confit of Brome Lake Duck, Alpindon cheese gratin, roasted pear salad|
|Lobster and leek risotto, butter poached loster claw, Asiago cheese|
|1/2 dozen Pristine Oysters - On the half shell, Thai mango relish|
(These were so good that I had another order all to myself)
|From the Rotisserie - Prime Rib of 28 day-aged beef, oxtail and celery root pave|
|Double baked warm chocolate cake, chocolate sorbetto|
Our entertainment for the evening was provided by Los Morenos. Their sound is a cross of many styles such as rumba, flamenco, jazz, and funk with an infectious dance beat that kept the dance floor packed all evening. I would love to see them play again in a heartbeat.
