AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (Classification): The soaring, luxurious dining room is the epitome of Jazz Age elegance, and I feel a little like the Great Gatsby when I dine here.
Historic. This dining room has a lofty ceiling decorated with gilt plaster and ornate frescoes of angels, the god Apollo in his chariot and classical scenes of 18th-century ladies and gentlemen. The seasonal menu presents sophisticated dishes such as Maine lobster salad with caviar cream as well as seared scallops with marinated Hedgehogs (mushrooms) and nage that rely heavily on local produce. The restaurant produces its own bourbon and beer. It even has its own herb garden and beehives on the roof. The desserts here are so special you may want to start your dinner with a pastry. In any case, don't leave without sampling such confections as cardamom Basque cake and mascarpone sabayon mousse.
