Oh, yes! Another delightful evening for food, fun, friends and wine at Le Café de Paris and their Farm and Wine Night. The wines this time were presented by Rod de Armond of Woodriver Cellars. With our dinner, we had a 2008 Woodriver Cellars Chardonnay, which “… delivers aromas of mango, citrus and honeydew melon with hints of French oak rounded out to a crisp, elegantly balanced finish.” (Woodriver Cellars description)

Our dinner was awesome, as would be expected from this restaurant. However, there did seem to be some “floor” confusion. I think I recognized some new faces joining the waite staff. They were good, don’t get me wrong, but one could tell that they were not precisely accustomed to the routine. They missed our salad, which was brought a little later and in more of the European style of salad after the main entree. Will this keep us from returning? Not hardly! Enjoy the photos!

Ron de Armond, Woodriver Cellars, and Robin savor the intricacies of the wine. How serious are they?

On the menu it said, “Smoked Salmon”. Actually this was lox, but just as good.
Smoked Salmon
Dill Crème Fraîche, Lemon and Croustini

Local Organic Field Green Salad
Confited Cherry Tomatoes and Lemon-Tarragon Vinaigrette.

Pork Roulade
Assorted Squash, Fried Squash Blossoms and Morel Mushroom Demi-Glace

Huckleberry Shortcake
Woodriver Red Wine and Caramel Reduction and Huckleberries

Such a great evening! If you missed this, you missed a good one. And it must be noted: We did not leave the restaurant empty handed. You see, they have a bakery on the premises. We have our breakfast pastries. Can you say Chocolate and/or Almond? Cheers!
