The food is Swiss French. Classic French cuisine, with a Swiss flair. For us, it's one of those splurge places. It's not extremely expensive, but it's extremely decadent, and I think it should be appreciated, so we don't overdo it. On Saturday night it's always full of super wealthy Newport snobs. Doesn't bother me. The owner isn't a snob, either is the waiter or the chef. Besides, it's the kind of place that you just feel comfortable at no matter who you are, what you're wearing or who you're sitting next to.
So, on to the food.
Appetizer: Braised Endive with Prociutto and Gruyere Gratin (this was out of this world!)
Appetizer: Foie Gras, seared with Balsamic Glaze and Blackberries (huge piece of Foie, seared perfectly!)
Entree: Steak au Poivre - Grilled New York Steak with creamy Black Peppercorn Sauce (I highly recommend it!)
Entree: Coq au Vin - Braised Chicken, Burgundy Wine and Mushroom Sauce
Dessert: Ice Cream - Strawberry & Vanilla
About this time the Chef is going table to table, asking how everyone's dinner was.
