Enroute to another restaurant sometimes you have to go with your instincts and change plans. That is what happened when I discovered Fish La Boissonnerie, a bistro buzzing with locals and foreigners alike. The host was helpful and forecast a quick wait, and the large selection of wines by the glass made the time pass quickly. The nearby tables and decent acoustics were conducive to meeting and chatting with your companions or other diners. The wine list is extensive and extra ordinary featuring wines from all over Europe at fair prices. The chalkboard specials and the seasonal menu cause for some tough decisions. Heavingly chilled gazpacho with fresh, blanched vegitables and plate of infused rissotto. Luckily the staff is very accommodating and were able to ퟙenhanceퟘ the pri-fix menu and added a well executed entree of smoked salmon, caviar and oyster beignets. Though this is a fish restaurant, the salmon entree was the only fish that made it to the table. The other wonderful dishes include roast lamb and potato pancake, and duck confit with julienned cabbage slaw. The bottle of bordeux lasted just long enough to add to the enjoyment of the creme brullee and chocolate glacee (ice cream).
