Cristal Room is a Michelin starred restaurant by the famous designer crystal house Baccarat and is completely decked out from head to toe with Baccarat crystal. The restaurant is designed by Phillippe Stark with world renowned Chef Guy Martin in the kitchen.
Hubs picked this restaurant mostly because he thought that I would go gaga over the decor. And let's just say he knows me pretty well lol!! Crystal and sparkly bling everywhere!!
Apologies we chose the 5 course w/ wine pairings and it didn't come w/ a menu and when we were served it was completely in French LOL! So my descriptions won't really be that thorough this time. Mostly what my palette picked up and my very (VERY) minimal French hahaha.
|Foie Gras & Kumquats|
|Lobster w/ Cauliflower & Pear emulsion w/ Clementine gelatin|
We both agreed this was by far our favorite dish the lobster was semi-cooked barely poached I think.. and it was soo sweet, tender and juicy. The foam on top tasted like super duper crab roe and every type of seafood in the sea blended into a foam. Intensely delicious!
|Monkfish & Tempura battered Calamari over black squid ink rice.|
|Duo of beef & veal w/ black truffle and the most AMAZING truffle cream sauce EVER.|
Seriously the mushroom truffle cream sauce was so good. I literally had to sit on my hands to keep myself from picking up the plate and licking it clean. The hubs resorting to taking his baguette and moping the sauce up it was that good hahahaha.
|Dark Chocolate Ganache w/ Coconut Cream & Madagascar Vanilla Ice Cream|
|Petit Fours - Pistachio w/ Chocolate Cream & Fruit Gelee's|

(P.S. - If you want to watch a video compilation of our entire evening visit here! We actually didn't have any idea we were filming a video while taking the still photos. I must have switched it onto a settling I never used before. So you can listen in on our random conversation haha and you can see what really goes into taking photos for my blog :)
