Much ado has been made of Daniel Rose’s reopening of Spring, so I’ll keep my contribution to the appreciative chorus to a minimum. But I will say it’s great to work just three doors down from Daniel, Marie-Aude and the team, even if it’s rare that I’ll be able to splurge for a meal there (unless they start cheffing up lobster rolls, of which I’ve heard rumors, for which I will pay boatloads of money).
First course: caviar d’aubergines
Creamy, lemony, lovely
Second course: smoked tomato, tempura shrimp and caramelized eggplant
Smoky, savory, pow!
Third course: red mullet with veal gelatin and foie gras
Fourth course: duck broth with carrots and radishes
Fifth course: duck breast served with crispy thigh bits and poached peach
Red and juicy and tender and shake-in-my-seat delicious
Dessert course: lemon pie, sans crust, crème anglaise, praline shavings and blueberries
Light, sweet, summer love
So qui sait? Maybe I'll be splurging at Spring more often than I think.
