To begin your evening, order a delicious glass of french wine, and start perusing the appetizer menu. The appetizers range from the delectable Steak Tartare au Conteau on a grilled baguette, to garlicy Escargots, to pan seared Scallops with truffle oil. Each savory bite is the perfect beginning to your incredible meal.

The soup and salad course is the next step in your culinary journey, with options of French onion soup, goat cheese and arugula salad, and Belgian endive salad with blue cheese and toasted walnuts.

For the main course you will find several options for red meat, poultry, and fish, including the tasty Filet De Boeuf Rossini, braised lamb shank, maple duck breast, red wine braised chicken, and lobster thermidor. The vegetarian option is a vegetable napoleon with flakey puff pastry, sweet potato, and goat cheese.

To finish off your exquisite meal, enjoy an espresso paired with any of the many incredible pastries from the dessert menu. For a rich and bold finisher, consider the dark chocolate cremeux with a chambord raspberry sauce, or poached pear with spices, ice cream, and a chocolate sauce. For more a more subtle delight, enjoy the Fraisier- a pistachio-almond sponge case with strawberries and cream. For a slightly more savory end, the cheese plate is the perfect option with samplings of roquefort, camembert, and muenster.
