After having a light, but delicious Cantonese lunch at LiLi, we saved ourselves for an extraordinary dinner at the magical, elegant and charming “Lasserre.” This too was a much anticipated return as the 2013 dinner at Lasserre, was simply outstanding. I’d been in touch with Monsieur Gaëtan Molette prior to our arrival and he assured me that our return would be as spectacular as our past visits – - he was absolutely correct!!!!
After a warm welcome by Monsieur Gaëtan Molette, he immediately escorted us to the kitchen. This kind and gracious gesture before dinner enhanced the experience because of my admiration and respect for those setting fire to food. This placed the cuisine on a completely different level as the relationship becomes one of mutual reverence. Chef Adrien Trouilloud and Chef Claire Heitzler were on their game tonight, although we missed Chef Heitzler, she did managed to leave a few lovely treats to end our evening. Here’s the evening……
Having the opportunity to dine in such amazing opulence, where the service and atmosphere are of the most professional and hospitable, I keep coming back to the same conclusion – - Perfection is Possible!!! Monsieur Molette, we thank you for an amazing evening and look forward to returning during out next visit. As “Directeur de Salle” your leadership and vision are to be admire, the evening was flawless. Monsieur Nicolas VIALETTES, from one wine professional to another – - thanks for the “WOW” factor. Your selections were perfect as they complimented the dishes so effortlessly and left no room for questioning our desired level of euphoria. Chef Heitzler, your magic touch continues to make rhubarb one of my must have desserts and the parfait – - made its way on the “must have” list. Chef Trouilloud – - AWESOME, just simply AWESOME!!!! You cook it, we’ll eat it. Thanks for delighting our palates and for welcoming us to your playground. We await our return and look forward to another spectacular evening.
