Lobster Bisque, Truffle Vacherin.  There’re chunks of lobster meat and the soup was rich in flavor; just the way I like it.

Foie Gras Sauté – It was good, perfectly seared and not dry at all; very well done.  I’m impressed.

Paupiette of sea bass – wrapped with potato, leek fondue and pinot noir reduction.  This is the chef’s favorite dish, with the potato crust crispy on the outside and the fish still juicy on the inside.

Crusted Colorado Lamb Chop – A very interesting dish, the lamb chop has a very crispy crust on the outside; although I feel the meat itself was a little undercooked.
