D'artagnan

We miss D'artagnan.

Right, we can still get their products, of course, but the restaurant!

While nowhere near perfect, it was fun (and heavy) and we really liked it.

Where else could you get perfectly wonderful French Kisses?

(The ones I get in the store aren't nearly the same)

Prunes soaked in Armagnac, stuffed with Foie Gras Mousse!

Any similar places around NYC?

Oh, that white armagnac was deadly!

I remember a magnificent dinner there, (with lots of wine and lots of those drinks), taking the slow NJ Transit train back to Philly, and moaning constantly, "Water, I need water!" Our dining companions and the other train riders were not amused.

On their final New Year's Eve, we had the 7-course Foie Gras Tasting Dinner - oh my, it was sublime!

Overheard at the Zabar’s prepared food counter in the 1970’s:

Woman (noticing a large bowl of cut fruit): “How much is the fruit salad?”

Counterman: “Three-ninety-eight a pound.”

Woman (incredulous, and loud): “THREE-NINETY EIGHT A POUND ????”

Counterman: “Who’s going to sit and cut fruit all day, lady… YOU?”

Newly updated: my online food photo extravaganza; cook-in/eat-out and photos from the 70's

Speaking of which, does anyone know which stores carry the French Kisses regularly? Many offer to order them, but I don't know who keeps them in stock. When I've ordered them, they seem to have been through the ringer in terms of freezing, thawing, etc.
