    Had the best martini (pepperoncini!), worth a second round. Whipped ricotta with truffled honey was smooth, no notes! Tuna tartare had an unexpected presentation but delicious. Caviar Gnocchi 🔥

    We knew it was going to be a great meal when our waiter, Ozzy, came over and stated what 3 drinks we were going to start the night off with. Nailed them all for all of us. It only got a lot better from there. My son can be picky so we have to go over how he likes things very plain. Never goes over well in restaurants with great creative chefs but Ozzy couldn't have been more accommodating. More importantly he actually got everything right. Many promise and don't deliver. My son had a perfectly cooked steak herb butter on the side and plain mashed potatoes. Their was nothing plain about them as they still tasted incredible and were done to perfection. Just without anything visible on top lol kids! All the food was equally done to perfection. We started with the steak tartare which came with the most amazing homemade potato chips and a quail egg on top. The escargot were amazing with by far the most generous amount we have ever had. My wife had the duck leg with home made pasta. We normally have duck breast but the leg took duck to another level. We both weren't sure about a leg thinking breast is normally better. There is no reason to doubt anything here just sit back and enjoy everything they do with precision. I had the pesto fettuccini with shrimp, asparagus and zucchini. Again everything perfectly presented and cooked. The mashed potatoes were absolutely amazing but the side of mac and cheese took it to a next level. I love it so had to try there's of course and wow, just wow. My son of course wouldn't try it because it was anything but plain but since it didn't have anything on top like bread crumbs or green stuff he eventually couldn't resist hearing me raving about it. Well I immediately lost the rest of the mac and cheese because he devoured the rest it was truly the best we both have ever had. Talk about elevated mac and cheese wow again. So now we are all full but we have to try dessert which all 3 were of course incredible as well
