    Went to August last Friday for lunch and it was amazing. Started at the Bar with PYT (pretty, young, thing?), it was so good. Then we were seated and ordered a bottle of Rose Champagne. We decided try the Prix Fixe Menu, started with the Pate de champagne, then the LA White Shrimp, and last the Vanilla Panna Cotta. They were all divine. My husband ordered the Lamb and the Chocolate Torte and they were delicious as well. We also started with the Potato Gnocchi with Blue Crab and Black Truffle. So fresh, melted in your mouth. The ambiance and service was top notch.
