I think I'm in a food coma...

So we went there for my birthday for lunch (today) and I got to say that it's been one of the better food experiences that I've had in a long time. I had Steak Roquefort with fries. First their fries. They're very narrow straight cut fries and turn out very well, crispy and sometimes crunchy which is a different feeling, but good none the less. Great by themselves, since they are lightly salted. The steak was a medium rare goodness covered in a Roquefort sauce and crispy onions. Eating it was pure pleasure. The sharpness of the blue Roquefort the onions and the steak combined together to make a whole body relaxing experience.

So let me tell you about the dessert. I had the Pot du Creme, which Keith also had, and Brandon had a Hazelnut cake (which I forget the name of). So the first taste I had of the Pot du Creme sent shivers down my spine. It was just divine. Deb, asked me if I was about to go have children (orgasmic would be a good description of it). It was just so delicious. But it is just so rich as well...even though the serving wasn't that big (compared to the cake), I was unable to finish it. At the end, I just could not continue.

The hazelnut cake that Brandon got was also very good. One of the layers of the cake, I swear to god, had to have been ground hazelnuts whipped into butter. So you get hazelnuts first and then just butter on the finish. How good is that?

I gotta say that I am looking forward to going there again and trying more. Everyone else seemed to really enjoy their meal as well.

I swear if I wasn't at work, I'd be taking a nap right now...even as it stands, I may still take a nap...
