Dinner is $250-$395 depending on pairings.  Next time I would LOVE to try the pairings.  Too bad I am not drinking! ;(  This dinner was over $1,000.  I was hungry because I ate every last bite!  This course isn’t for someone without an appetite or love for food.  Every bite was delicate and orgasmic, as fine french should be.
