We have this funny, I think European in origin, birthday tradition where the person who's birthday it is, treats the other to a nice birthday lunch. Last month I took M. to Cosme, newly opened for lunch, and today we tried The Gander with its recently revamped menu. The $35 prix fixe consists of two courses. We shared a fried calamari salad, sea trout tartare, duck breast and scallops. The scallops were perfectly grilled and accompanied by chantrelles and peas, lovely. The duck breast surprised us with a bit of five spice Asian flavor and broccoli. Quite a serene and lovely restaurant with its sage green banquettes.

I'm so happy to see you guys are back to blogging! I just happened to see if there had been any updates and yay, there was! I used to read it everyday and was sad when you disappeared. I hope you will blog your afternoon coffee treats again too.
