Seriously good French cuisine: Brasserie Four.
This place really has it all….nice bar, French bistrot food and a great selection of wines.
We started with the chicken liver pâté to share….it’s a large portion…a terrine…so no issues with sharing the dish. The pâté was mild and the dish was made by the accompanying sliced apples drizzled with honey…truly outstanding! The trios salad was a nice mix made by the beets and vinaigrette.
Then everyone was off to their own dish. My choice was the bouillabaisse which was classic and delicious. I did try the Dover Sole meuniére which was very light and would be a good choice if you are looking for something a bit on the lighter side.
For dessert, the predominant choice of the table was the mousse au chocolat…which I of course had to have. It was presented in an interesting fashion……a glass of crème anglaise covered with nut brittle all topped with the mousse….the consistency of ice cream or a gelato…..a great ending to the meal.
Now a word….or more…about the wine. You’re presented with a wine list but don’t stop there. Visit the real wine action….an entire wall of wines from which to choose. Wines from Washington, Oregon, California, France….and the rest of the world. So, spend some time with the wines, pick your choice and take it to your table. Our pick for the night was an Oregon Pinot Noir…Domaine Drouhin….always a great Pinot choice.
Service was excellent and the space inviting and comfortable.
