Amadeus @ Life Center revised
August 24, 2012
Rock us again, Amadeus! Earlier entry on Amadeus Bistro & Wine Bar: August 14, 2012.
A harmonious combo: poached egg, grilled asparagus and Hollandaise sauce.
Staying in tune with our fowl mood: rustic-looking duck terrine mixed with pistachios.
Duck confit. Too many renditions elsewhere are stringy or shrilly salty, so we always appreciate one that hits the right notes, like Amadeus' does.
Sachertorte, the classic Austrian creation of choc sponge cake, apricot jam and dark choc icing.
Something somewhat special: orange-spiked tiramisu, for a trumpet blast of tangy flavor.
If chocolate be the food of love, eat on: Ferrero Rocher-topped dark-and-white-choc cake with custard cream layers.
A chorus of cocktails: Amadeus Delight (vodka, gin, apricot brandy, sweet and sour, lemon juice) and Mozart (vodka, southern comfort, amaretto, orange juice, grenadine).
Also unique: sweet, honey-laced grappa, for a pitch-perfect coda to the evening.
