Wow. Quay. Words may not even suffice. It was amazing. I've been to several fine restaurants in my life but that was like a whole nother level. Is nother a word? It looks weird.
They were having chardonnay but I am not a huge chardonnay fan so I asked if the sommelier could recommend wine to accompany each course. Look lunch was hideously expensive adding another $100 on to get wine help was not exactly going to shift the cheque that much. Anyway, he was amazing. Amazing. We were talking about the food a lot afterwards but honestly, for me, it was about the wine. I was the only one to have 8 textured chocolate cake for dessert and he paired a red with it. It was 17% alcohol, a red wine fortified with brandy. It's called Claude Cortois. It was extrodinary. Paired with the cake it was like crossing dimensions.
When you go for a culinary experience like that... it is about the sensations and not the quantity of food or how many condiments you get. I can't describe what I mean, actually. But it was fun.
The sommelier ran away when I asked him if he was single.
Alright, well let's get to the pictures, shall we?
