Dinner for Two
Simpler table settings are a welcome recent addition to the elaborate settings of yore, but all the good stuff has remained the same. Donâ€™t be fooled by lesser restaurantsâ€™ failures: Dinner for Twoâ€™s prix fixes are inventive and worth a lot more than the price tag in quality, not just quantity. A local cut of meat (go for the Chama fillet) and wild mushrooms can never be beat, nor can the glazed roasted figs, which fall somewhere between appetizer, dessert and hot-buttered heaven.
Word to the wise: If the cold cherry ginger comes up as the soup dâ€™jour, expect an experience more along the lines of a smoothy, but an adventure nonetheless. Many of the items are grown nearbyâ€”that is, if theyâ€™re not straight out of the ownerâ€™s backyardâ€”and the folks are always flexible on swapping out desserts (so you can bookend your meal with the figs).
