Another great wine dinner at Le Café de Paris in Boise. It’s been a while since we have been to one of their dinners. This was really good. The wines were overall an exceptional choise for paring with the dinner. And the dinner, ala carte, was super. What we liked was the wider range of selections from the special menu. 4 appetizers to choose from, 3 salads, 3 soups and 8 entrees. The 8 entrees included a special for the night of Rack of Lamb. Yum! Enjoy these photos of the evening and enjoy our selections. Cheers! Don’t forget to go full screen with these photos to get the “full effect”.
Le Café de Paris is known for their bakery, Gaston’s Bakery. Yummy breads and other treats.
Here are some of the wines we had. Great with the Lamb and the Chicken entrees. Some volitility noticed and green olive in the 2006. Surprisingly, the asparagus went very well with the 2006.
Good with the oysters and the soup. The soup brings out the herbalness of the wine.
