Dinner on Tuesday July 6th 2010, 18PM

-Foie Gras Poélé, Tarte tatin aux pommes, Sauce Caramel -the perfectly well cooked and deeply flavored fresh livery foie was not the only star of this dish. The apple tarte tatin at the bottom of the foie was was aslso unbelievably delicious (I was afraid that the caramel would overwhelm it with an overdose of sugar, but I was wrong).

-Pot de foie gras cuit au lave vaisselle, gelée de muscat au poivre long - A creamy foie gras au torchon alike concoction. Basically, it is seared in a jar + poached in a dishwasher. Surprisingly delicious and a treat to enjoy!

-Cote de boeuf rotie, Jus à l'estragon, légumes racines, foie gras, truffes noires - This dish (for 2 persons) costs $80 without the extras of foie and black truffles, $120 with those extras. It is a generous portion, that's enough for two empty stomachs. The gravy was delicious, evenly seasoned, with a remarkable upfront enjoyable beefy flavor. The meat was of high quality, perfectly cooked at ideal medium rare and packed with exceptional rich depth of meaty exquisite flavors.

Service was relax, accessible and accomodating in a professional manner.

Excellent table.

Is all that juice on the cote de boeuf plate added or was the meat not well rested? It looks good but also a real mess.

Thank you for the review BTW. I actually have a reservation tonight at KG.

I've only heard great things about Kitchen Galerie, and although your review is very positive, I can't say the photos make the dishes look very appetizing! :blink:

The third dish looks especially messy and bloody, sauce all over the plate....

I guess they're going for flavour over presentation?
