This is a tiny restaurant with BIG flavor and made from scratch food. Preparation takes a bit of time, but the deliciousness of the cuisine makes up for the wait. It’s a BYOB (I just received a gift of a portable wine chiller apparatus, so now I can bring Veuve Clicquot with us to drink. Love that widow!).
The fare is exceptional, in a class by itself! Dennis Foy, owner and chef, is one of those cooks who has an understanding of how to blend flavors, which is an art. He has extremely competent help in the kitchen, as well. I know that too many restaurants skimp, that is, don’t use the better ingredients, and, being a foodie, I won’t eat what is served. But not here! This is a total treat. Dennis’ wife, who acts as hostess and waitress (with some help, of course) provides excellent service and is always thoroughly delightful.
We love to take newbies here, so they can enjoy the experience. The last time, we dined at D’floret, it was after an art show in Lambertville. Here’s some of the menu we enjoyed:
For starters, Garden Fresh Pea Soup, mint, ginger and EVO;
Wild mushroom langoustine crepe, cream d’homard;
Sautéed Tian of Crab, thyme.
For mains: Roasted Center Cut Veal Chop, garlic, seasonal vegetables, fingerlings;
Dry Aged Center Cut Sirloin, fingerlings, pomme puree, glazed carrots; Seared Scottish Salmon, Spaghetti Squash, Greens Beans Black Olive Puree.
The décor is minimalist, with some interesting abstract art. Dining there is very cozy; it is friendly and provides a warm feeling. The kitchen area is in view of the tables. Just when you put your order in, then they begin to prepare it! Everyone we take to D’floret really enjoys the experience! Go, go, go!
P.S. The deserts are delicious!
