    Spot on description of the place and the meal! I’ll share on Facebook a couple of my photos of the foyer of the hotel as we headed to the Jardin.

    The photos of the venue, diners (yourselves), and the food leaves no doubt that the entire experience was exquisite!

    You all look fabulously wealthy and like you dine there all the time! Well done!!
    I am coveting the food and atmosphere, especially Jim’s dessert!

    You’re killing me! I think that is such a beautiful hotel. I’m sorry I’ve been incommunicado. Combination sinus infection, heartburn issues (probably from reading your blog) and really busy at work. Loving it, we are absorbing the new folks from Wisconsin. But I am sort of a/the source of local knowledge – how to get a pediatrician, where to get your hair cut, who is a good painter, etc. – it’s been sort of like a game show. I’m going to the beach for five nights next week and be a vegetable and can’t wait! All is well here and I have so enjoyed reading everything. But that place – I saw that courtyard one time, can’t remember when – and that meal! c’est magnifique! Please give my love to Bernie and the Bilbros!

      Wonderful to hear from you! I assumed you had been very busy. Yesterday’s lunch was one of those special delights. It was my idea and so I was glad it turned out well. My heart stopped when I saw the menu prices but we all decided not to care! Go on line and look at the 2-star restaurant in the hotel. Magnifique! $2500 per night to stay there. We’ll line that up for you on your next trip over!
