What a charming restaurant! I’ve wanted to go here for a while now and wasn’t able to last year because our party was larger than six (their limit). Now I understand why…with just eight tables and two counter seats, there’s not a lot of room to spare. And rightly so, it’s a beautiful dinner meant to be appreciated whereas with a larger group, sometimes the conversation and laughs take over the spotlight.
At Frenchie (the nickname Chef Gregory Marchand was coined while working for Jamie Oliver at one of his London establishments years ago), you are presented a five course seasonal tasting menu along with an amuse bouche and two desserts (eat light during the day). From start to finish the meal was outstanding! So many pleasant surprises and originality. Honestly, the strawberry gazpacho that was our amuse bouche is still on my mind. Stunning yet delicate flavors with just the right acidity. YES! Overall it was definitely worth the hype. And don’t forget to make a reservation well in advance, you’ll need it!
