Kate was pleasantly shocked 😀 When the flowers had been delivered to our desk, the girl on the subsequent desk requested her accomplice, “Now, where are my flowers?” 😅 As the flower was comparatively giant, our host Philippe provided to put it on a wine stand. He even added some cardboard to prop up the flower so it was seen all through our night. He even quipped that he enjoys a problem. Thanks Philippe! While we’re nonetheless on Philippe, he’s one humorous fella. Back to our neighbours, the gentleman needed to face up and head to the bathroom with out his masks. This was when Philippe needed to remind him to placed on his masks however he added a joke saying, “This is a really strange virus. You can sit there and have your meal without mask but when you stand up – mask on. It spreads when you stand up.” 😂

Both dishes had been actually actually good. The Braised Lamb Shank with tomatoes & spices, potatoes ($44) was actually tender and the meat didn’t have the gamey style (in any respect) that’s normally related to lamb. Judging from the image, you may see that the portion is reasonably beneficiant as properly. Next, the Braised Beef Cheek in crimson wine, carrots, mashed potatoes, bacon ($44). If we had to decide on, the braised beef cheek edged out the lamb shank just a little. Simply as a result of the meat had been infused with the crimson wine and there’s a slight tangy-ness to the dish that made it that rather more appetising. Goes very well with the bread too.

To spherical up the meal, we went with one other crowd favorite – Calvados Souffle ($20)…

Although the Calvados Souffle, at $20, appears to be just a little expensive, it isn’t. After tasting it, we understood why. It was most likely the most effective souffle we’ve ever tasted. The souffle was actually smooth and fluffy whereas the delicate eggy-ness and milky style might be skilled with every mouth. Very satisfying. Little surprise that the souffle is printed on the home windows of Bistro Du Vin.

After dinner, we caught Thor (Love & Thunder)…
