Last night my husband I were treated to dinner at Table 16. We'd been there once before last year but weren't overly impressed. Since then then they've added a new chef and changed the menu to multi-cultural fusion style bistro. And the results are amazing.
I had a drilled foie gras appetizer served with a maple sauce and fruit/onion relish that was outstanding. I also got to sample the baby green salad with peecans and bleu cheese as well as another appetizer with duck. All were excellent.
For the entree I chose bacon wrapped squab - excellent and something you don't see on the menu too often - with gnocci and braised kale (not a fan of the kale) However my husband who got a steak shared some of his sweet potato creme brulee and braised cabbage with cranberries which was out of this world. The sea scallops our friend ordered (with jalapeno hushpuppies) were also outstanding.
The restaurant was busy for the two waiters there so the chef/owner, Graham, actually took us to our table, gave us menu recommendations and took our first course order. He also shared the recipe (generally) for the cabbage side and talked at length with us after our meal.
It was a very memorable meal in many ways but most expecially the care with which the chef crafted the menu, created our meals and connected with our party. I will definitely go back again and again.
