As soon as our hostess seated us, she provided us a "fromage" (or cheese) menu which, unfortunately, we didn't order from. Though, I did hear a few times in my life that the French know their cheeses but my husband wasn't in the mood for it. Ahh c'est la vie!
The manager came by to quickly greet us and to tell us "Happy Anniversary" which then our waiter provided us a couple glasses of bubbly - and, might I add, was probably some of the best champagne we've tasted. But, then again, it's not like we usually have champagne so how do we truly know (one might wonder).
We ordered the Prime Beef Tenderloin Tartare. This dish came outfitted with truffled potato chips (which looked a bit like Ruffles), a single quail egg, and a sprinkle of sea salt off to the side.
Before dipping the chips in the tartare, we "broke" the egg and mixed it in and then sprinkled the salt over it. We didn't know if that was the correct way but we remembered what one waiter did to a similar dish from one of our past dinner dates in WA.
This dish is obviously raw so, before you decide to knock it, TRY IT. My husband used to be a bit more picky when we first got together but he's acquired some culinary tastes over the years simply by trying them. Trust when I say this tasted AMAZING.
Entree and Sides
Also ordered was a half bottle of pinot noir to wash everything down - this provided us 2 glasses each.
It was about 8:30 p.m. and time to call it a night. Once the check was paid, we set off - full and happy. I went back up to our room to kick off my heels and relax while he wandered the casino. A night we both could call ideal.
