I've been hearing the buzz and as a food blogger, I knew I just had to hurry on in and see what all the fuss was about. Oh...wow. I wanted to break out into "that" cafe scene on When Harry Met Sally...you know the one! But I wanted to reenact it after each and every bit, no joke. And the presentation of each and every dish is a feast for the eyes...you literally begin the taste experience from afar.
Two of my co-workers/friends and I were starving and Papa Ganouj was the remedy. We started with hummus and pitas off the Mezze section of the menu . There was some kind of oil drizzled over the hummus, not sure but it may have been a roasted pepper oil of some kind. Wasn't spicy enough to be chili oil. The texture of the hummus was not superfine, which really makes it tasty because you can get a full taste and bite of the chickpea.
The Coq au Vin Blanc was literally foodgasmic. The chicken was wrapped in a nest of filo dough, so the flavors and textures married together in such a heavenly way. Exquisite!
