happy birthday
This is just the bread basket
From L'Atelier

and every one was delicious!

From L'Atelier
amuse bouche of avocado and cilantro flavored graprefruit gelee. Such a refreshing start.

From L'Atelier

Heirloom tomato salad, basil oil and fleur de sel. So simple and yet, beyond any heirloom tomato salad I've ever made.

From L'Atelier

Poached baby Kussi oysters with butter sauce
(Please disregard the crumby, bread mess.)

From L'Atelier

Close up. These were seriously, seriously delicious!!!

From L'Atelier

King crab a la plancha and vegetables in basil oil. Enough said.

From L'Atelier

Asparagus kebab with quail egg "mirror", shimeji and Iberico ham. We sort of missed the ham (the matchsticks over the egg) because we were so engaged with the rest of the plate.

From L'Atelier

Sole and baby leeks, buttery shellfish sauce with lime and ginger. So flaky and buttery.

From L'Atelier

Wines for the meat courses

From L'Atelier

Lamb shoulder confit with eggplant compote and pomme puree (you cannot simply call these "mashed potatoes")

From L'Atelier

Foie gras stuffed quail with pomme puree. I don't even need to comment on the excellence of this.

From L'Atelier

Marscapone panna cotta with strawberries and balsamic ice cream. Delicious!

From L'Atelier

Blackberry compote with spice cake, rhubarb sorbet and candied rhubarb. Sounds simple, tasted divine.

From L'Atelier

Special, extra birthday dessert of Cinq Tartes.  As I can recall:  cinnamon, lemon, blueberry, raspberry and chocolate. Being a complete birthday brat, this was really special...and delicious. And as stuffed as we were, we managed to eat every bite.

Mon chocolat
A fantastic, delicious, worth-every-penny, birthday meal!
