Great restaurant and I would go back many times as I live in the neighborhood.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBa was a wonderful experience.Ba was a wonderful experience. We were greeted politely and promptly and shown to our table. We chose the smoked quail and mushroom gratin. Both were excellent. The gratin was quite rich and with a salad would have provided a wonderful dinner. The quail was smoky and had a delicious and piquant bbq sauce which must have had lardons and balsamic vinegar.
Dinner was chard and steak frites. The chard was served with broccoli. All excellent.
Dessert was the flourless chocolate cake with creme anglaise. Really nice. The cake was dense without being overpowering, and the sauce was to die for.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMdelightful. we loved it anddelightful. we loved it and can't wait to come back!2/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
