Plumed Horse, April 2010

Best service, beautiful decorated dinning room, and knowledgeable staff remind me Ritz Carlton Dinning room.  We love the wine collection, wine cellar, wine service, and the one of the two beta site for iPhone wine list (the other is French Laundry).

Had so much fun and only took pix of three out of the nine bottles; Notes, sorry Nick.

1998 Taittinger Comte Champagne

 Lightly Cooked Japanese Hamachi
Tsar Nicoulai caviar, pickled cucumber

 Chilled Foie Gras "Au Poivre" Terrine
spicy peanut pistou, tiny greens, tamarind 

2007 Corton Charlemagne Bouchard delicious nice rich fruit and balance
2005 Corton Charlemagne P-Y Colin Morey – corked

Local Dungeness Crab Wontons
breakfast radish, shellfish consomme 

2007 Puligny Folatieres Le Moine older color, and seems advanced

2007 Chassagne Caillerets PY Colin-Morey fantastic wine, bright rich and great balance

smoked asparagus salad, tempura enoki mushroom, dashi nage

1999 Ruchottes Chambertin Rousseau form the wine list, excellent, quite rich, aromatically great

Nick stood on the chair to take this shot.  After 9 bottles, we were a rowdy bunch.
