Our First Rendezvous to L'Albatros

Despite the current economic conditions in our country, especially in Cleveland, we felt the need to do our part and help stimulate the economy, support the local dining scene by treating ourselves to a Valentine's Dinner at L'Albatros.

José can't decide what to eat -- it all sounds so good...

This cheese guy was so very helpful, recommending some exquisite fromage for us to try. We really wanted to sample them all.

This was the fromage (with a lovely fig spread) we ended up devouring. Too bad we don't recall the names of any of them. Although, we're confident you cannot go wrong -- be sure to get a selection of cheeses if you come here!

The soup du jour (a mushroom bisque) was so tasty as was the Roasted Artichoke with Lemon Aioli

Our main course:
Kelly ordered superb and spicy mussels with pomme frites while José had some fantastic duck confit

Although we cannot remember the exact name of this dessert (it was a special for the evening), we thoroughly enjoyed it's light and complimentary flavors of white/dark chocolate and raspberry

Since it is Valentine's Day, at the end of the meal they gave Kelly a fancy rose made out of a napkin*
