I have been to Monsieur Benjamin’s for brunch but never for dinner. (see previous post, https://justcallmequeen.wordpress.com/2015/04/23/monsieur-benjamin-2/) So, I was so excited to check out Cory Lee’s french bistro establishment for dinner!
I settled in to peruse the menu with a glass of muscadet sevre et maine:
To start the meal, we ordered their escargot bourdelaise mushroom duxelles, garlic, and parsley: This was so buttery and delcious. The escargot was so tender and the rich sauce it was baked in, should definitely be sopped up with some good french bread.
Since we were ordering extra bread to eat up all the sauce, we got their bone marrow with bacon marmalade as well:
For our main courses, we got their Arctic Char Amadine:
And their Duck confit with a ragout alicuit, or rustic stew:
Since there is always room for dessert, who can say no to palmier ice cream??
