Today we made the maple gastrique for the Dining Room bar. We use it in our Apple Cocktail with Old Weller Bourbon, Liard's Applejack and apple cider. It's delicious!

This is one of our favorite white wines: Nigl "Freiheit" Grüner veltliner. Grüner veltliner was the hot wine, not too long ago, but luckily the shine has faded leaving us to quietly enjoy a bottle without feeling needlessly hip. It's a semi-aromatic variety, along the lines of Chardonnay, but with much more verve and delicacy. The nose is full of apple and apricot, but on the palate the mineral realy shines through. Drink it with anything, drink it alone, but drink it if you have the chance.

Our server was willing to answer all the questions about the menu and didn't rush us with the bill and yes it's expensive but not over the top and it was a special occasion so it made sense to me. I plan to return there just to challenge them with my French! That's the only thing I forgot to do. I also learned that if you space the meals, you get filled up quickly. I can't rate the meal any higher because I didn't have anything to compare with, but it was great. Overall, it was a great experience!

Unbelievably delicious food, and a myriad of little "snacks" (smoked butters, dehydrated yogurt with herbed aoli & fish roe, purple carrot leather, etc..) leading up to the four-course meal. Everything was fantastic. I'm rating it high on value because I've had similarly priced meals that left me hungry, and after Castagna, they would leave me sorely disappointed.

We experienced a long wait on a Thursday evening at the Cafe side of the restaurant. The food was good but each dish seemed to be missing something to take it to the next level. For example the peach tiramisu was more of a trifle than tiramisu as there wasn't even a hint of expresso flavor or ladyfingers.

What an experience! It's spendy, but every course will intrigue, challenge, and wow you.
