a trek downtown

dinner last night at Corton, with A Hero of D-Day and his Devoted Spouse, two of our favorite people. Dining room was half empty. Two of us started with a large melon-ball shaped serving of foie gras, wrapped in beet jelly, on a plate garnished by Tinkerbelle -- much better than it sounds! And two had a warm poached pheasant egg in cream soup with ... well, lots of things, reminded the Diner of leftover plates (albeit v.high quality leftovers). Mains were much more successful - 3 rabbit, 1 sturgeon. And v. generous portions. No complaints from Hero, his Devoted Spouse charming and ironic as usual. Came home full, tired, happy.
