 Assistant General Manager William Badillo outdid himself with great food picks and marvelous service for our table. We started with bacon-wrapped dates, goat cheese croquettes, and braised cauliflower for appetizers; there was also a salmon, cream cheese and onion tortilla in the mix.

The main course was a full roasted chicken with purple potatoes and half lemon wedges covered with rosemary. It was brought to the table whole to view, and then taken back to the kitchen to carve up for eating. Grilled asparagus and sweet corn with spicy mayo, cotija cheese, lime, and salt was another side dish. Dessert was dulce de leche soaked French toast with maple caramelized apples and cinnamon ice cream.

The regular menu includes Blue Fin Tuna, salmon poke, ceviche, oysters, avocado toast, and Oxtail Benedict. The hash is fantastic along with the Duck and Waffle. Try the Cuban sandwiches or the smoked fish dip or the Australian Grilled lamb chops.
