La Tour D’Argent

No comments

It’s hard to believe it has been four years since the last visit in 2011 to La Tour D’Argent, for it was one of those moments in time when all the elements of formal dining were synced and magic was made.

With its wonderful legacy, fantastic cellar and impeccable service effortlessly executed, one has only to arrive with an appetite of grand expectations and whispered conversations.  As we settled into that ever so familiar element where haute cuisine reigns supreme, we knew the evening was going to be as memorable as the last, if not better and Monsieur Ridgway, Chef Sommelier, assured us of this.  Without missing a beat, he reminded us of the Roumier 1993 Chambolle Musigny “Les Cras” that we so loved and offered to create another unforgettable wine pairing – – YES, YES, and  YES was our answer.  And so the evening began, first with up,  La Tour D’Argent Champagne – Grand Cru Brut Rosé.

Another well-appointed evening at La Tour D’Argent – – from the moment we arrived and until the moment we exited, every encounter was one to remember.  Chef Laurent Delarbre, thank you for excellent meal.  I’m hoping it will not be another three years before we return.
