Epure with 1 Michelin star sits prettily at the center of Harbour City. They have an outdoor bar, cafe, as well as a fine dining space. I finally went one evening with a few girl friends for a nice tasting dinner of the Le French May Silver Jubilee Gala Dinner! The dinner tasting includes 5 Courses for $988 a person. (It includes the canapés, coffee/tea and all the courses.)
Beautiful sleek and elegant fine dining space! 🙂 So ready to eat.
We start with some amuse bouche…completely excited for the meal to come!
Blue fin tuna tartar, tomato consommé and white caviar. A refreshingly light first course. The tuna tartar was flavorful and rich.
A fruity, citrus-y cocktail for me. This was a really nice drink! Lemon, lime and cucumber…mmm 😉
Brittany blue lobster & rock fish soup, saffron & basil. This was even better than the tuna tartar. The rock fish soup was thick and full (almost like a sauce but worked for this dish.) The lobster meat was plump, tasty and went perfectly with the soup.
Line-caught sea bass, baby spinach, heirloom radish & verbena sauce. And then…it got even better. This sea bass was decadent and flavorful. Great execution on this dish.
‘La Dombes’ black chicken fed w/ grain & mineral, Loire Valley asparagus, morel sauce. Terrific! The chicken was juicy, rich and moist. Only thing is I wanted more of it- the portion was quite small (for a main course.)
Seasonal artisan cheeses from Epure’s cellar, homemade preserve. I LOVEEEE CHEESE. Cheese heaven.
I chose a selection of cheese- one being comte….can’t get enough of comte cheese!
As well as a gigantic slice of table side caramelized mille-feuille, fresh strawberries, lime zest chantilly, portion for 2 persons (because they split the mille-feuille in half.) This was fantastic. My favorite thing of the night. The crust was thin, flaky and crunchy. Perfectly crispy and went great with the fresh strawberries and cream. You can also taste a light hint of the lime zest.
Great dinner tasting- 5 Courses for $988 a person! I really enjoyed myself. Only thing is I wished the main dishes portions were larger.
