Dinner at the Mockingbird Bistro

I enjoyed a fantastic dinner last night at Mockingbird Grill with my husband and some of his business associates. We sat upstairs in a separate dining area that has a balcony overlooking the main dining room. This restaurant has a great atmosphere (they call the decor "funky gothic"), impeccable service, a diverse wine list and delicious food.
I had the Asparagus Soup of the Day to start my meal which was good, my husband had the Carmelized Onion Soup which was even better. Everyone snacked on the truffled pommes frites as the main courses arrived. Both of us had opted for off the menu specials. I chose the pan-seared snapper with corn risotto and broccolini and he got the filet of tenderloin with crabmeat served with asparagus and mashed potatoes. Perfectly-sized portions and scrumptious flavors.
Our table went through a few bottles of Domaine Faiveley "Clos Des Myglands" 1er Cru Mercurey which I enjoyed from the soup through the dessert, a homemade raspberry sorbet with mixed fresh berries.
Everyone in our group enjoyed the evening and the meal. I intend on going back soon, I think I want to try the duck entree and the lemon tart dessert on my next visit.
Highly recommended!
