And now we get to La Fontaine, and one of the best meals I’ve ever eaten.
A note here: I use natural light for my restaurant picture, and never ever ever use a flash, to avoid disturbing my fellow patrons. I made an exception for La Fontaine, because I had the room to myself, and because the meal was incredible.
Not an overwhelming first impression, is it? But incredible thing happen inside.
My Dining Room at La Fontaine
The Amuse Bouche
Raw vegetables and olives w/a rich dipping sauce.
My appetizer was a group of small tapas-like dishes.
Filet et Escalope de Foie Gras de Canard a la Plancha, Pommes Pont Neuf
This was amazing. Perfectly grilled breast of duck and superb foie gras (I know. Go away.) w/cranberries and a selection of sauces. “Pommes Pont Neuf”, not pictured, are simply thick french fries. Note the “plate”–it’s a slab.
