Café du Centre, Geneva…pure joy

The place was completely packed, with tables being turned all around us. The restaurant is located two blocks off Lake Geneva’s main drag with outside seating under a huge awning and a large space inside.

Nearly all the dishes as irresistible. Noix de coquilles St Jacques roties, aux pointes d’asperges, infusion a l’essence de truffe, pommes puree – roasted scallops, fresh asparagus and black truffle sauce, mashed potatoes was carefully cooked and the combination of textures worked very well together. Even better was homard et crevettes rotis a la minute risotto aux herbes, sauce americaine – lobster and prawn risotto, shell fish sauce had rice that had thoroughly absorbed the stock, and had lovely texture. Service was fine.

Despite its name, Café du Centre demands to be liked. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

Davio’s, Boston…well-known for their service as they are for their fare

Comfy armchairs and high-ceilinged dining room. The tables are sheathed in perfectly starched white tablecloths. The menu requires double the normal time to decide because there are so many tempting items calling out to you. This is Davio’s in Boston, Massachusetts.

The 24oz Prime Natural Aged Bone-in Ribeye was appreciably rich, flavorful, dense tasting for lack of a better word, and also noticeably tender. It was basically an explosion of beef on the tongue. Maine Lobster risotto, asparagus, fresh herbs, lobster cream ooze luxury. The rich Maine lobster with its unparalleled sweetness brings elegance to a classic. It’s a pure delight for all the senses.

The experience at most restaurants is as important as the food. If you are lucky to have Christina Chrissie serve your table, service is assured and seamless. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…davios bos5davios bos1
