J went ahead with the $29 ARW deal (appetizer, entree, and dessert).  I opted to stick with just the entree as I wasn’t too crazy about the entree choices offered with the ARW deal.

Duck 3 Ways – duck confit and seared foie gras with saute cherries, green beans, and duck fried potatoes with light mustard sauce: 
duck confit was crispy on the outside and moist on the inside 
Taste: 9/10
foie gras a bit greasy 
Taste: 7/10

J had the halibut with edible orchid: lacked flavor.
Taste: 6/10

Profiteroles with vanilla ice cream and warm chocolate sauce
Taste 8/10

All in all, the food was good.  May go back just to enjoy the intimate and quaint setting.  Tomorrow we take a break, because I have yoga classes in the evening.  I can’t see how some people can eat out every single day. 吃的好累阿!
