This time it was a bit trickier with Ramona, but after asking twitter whether or not it was a good idea to bring a baby to a wine bar, I received the helpful tip to call the restaurant and ask. Cru said that they totally encourage families to eat there, so Colby, Dustin, Ramona, and I made our way to the Domain. We had a reservation for which we were almost 15 minutes late, but they seated us anyway. It was such a nice day that we decided to eat outside.
|Ramona had no preference between indoors and out.|
The croque madam consisted of a croissant with smoked ham, gruyere cheese, and a bechemel sauce all topped with an egg. Unfortunately the bechemel sauce had separated a bit, but considering the strong flavors of the gruyere and ham, it didn't really matter. And adding an egg with a runny yolk to pretty much anything makes it more delicious.
Dustin got the eggs benedict, which he said that he liked. Colby took the picture, which is why only part of it is pictured.
For the dessert course, Dustin and I both got berries and cream, which was served in a cookie-like tart shell. I really really liked this. The creme was actually a citrus mousse and it paired nicely with the blackberry, raspberry, and blueberry sauce.
Colby, being the chocolate-fan, ordered the molten lava cake with raspberry coulis and creme anglais. He said that he liked it too.
