We went to Compere Lapin tonight.
left - tequila, aperol, passion fruit, lime
right - rose wine, hibiscus, elderflower, honeysuckle vodka
chive-bacon biscuits with chive butter and maple butter
conch croquettes, pickled pineapple tartar sauce
smoked tuna tartare, avocado, crispy bananas
hamachi, guava curry, papaya
nice balance of sweet and heat, with a lingering “bite” that slowly builds in intensity
roasted half chicken with rice and peas
curried goat, sweet potato gnocchi, cashews
a combination that worked and also had no bones which attests to the kitchen’s attention to detail.
roasted banana zeppole, hazelnut, caramel sauce
spiced chocolate mousse, lemongrass, cashews
there was chocolate “soil” underneath the ice cream and faint notes of chile in the mousse, sort of like a mole
with a 20% tip, total for two came out to $190. plus the service was better and more attentive than our experience at Bayona.
