Stunning views of the city below, this is a wonderful restaurant for a daytime or night’s visit. I have had the pleasure to dine here a few times and each has been a memorable experience. Not only are the views spectacular, great food and wonderful service make the dining experience one that you will not forget. I had lunch recently with my friend Nikki and we were fortunate to have a window table. I had the tasty Fraîche’s Beef Burger ($16) caramelized onions, pancetta, aged cheddar cheese, sea salted fries in a very nice iron pan. Nikki had the Autumn Chicken Salad ($18) confit chicken, mixed greens, ripe pear, pumpkin, walnut dressing.
We couldn’t pass up dessert as the whole dessert menu looked fabulous. We shared the outstanding Chocolate Hennesey XO Fondant Cake & Ice Cream ($12) with brandied prune gelato and apricot purée and the coveted Hennessy XO. The lunch and dinner menus are quite different, since on this visit we were in for lunch, the menu featured a selection of salads, pasta, risotto and other specialties. Already looking forward to my next visit, may check out the weekend Brunch!
