Mrs. C and I were celebrating another happy (and divorce-free) anniversary and decided to try the WT. The restaurant is located in a hotel but has an entrance off the street. We were ushered in by a very tall hostess and given our choice of tables. After selecting a romantic spot (actually most of the tables could be one) we were given a handful of menus, and left to choose. I noticed that the ambiance was rather luxurious and a quick trip to the w/c in the adjacent lobby showed that it was clean and well appointed. I wasn’t sure why the dining room had pictures of battles and curtain rods shaped like arrows, but Mrs. C pointed out that it was the WT after all. Made sense, since WT was a famous Swiss warrior and helped spark a revolution that eventually lead to defeat of the Habsburgs and the formation of the Swiss federation. After considering this briefly, I delved into the dinner menu. Lots of choices, most of them hearty fare.
I went for a tasty stuffed Portobello appetizer, and my beloved anniversary co-celebrant and I had lobster bisque and the daily special pumpkin cream soup. For mains we had lamb shank and roast duck, with cocktails and some nice house rosé to go with our meals. All the food was fabulous, and the pumpkin soup and lamb were particularly good. Plus the portion sizes were very generous.
Service was awesome, and I couldn’t believe how attentive the staff was. At the end of the meal they served the triple crème brûlée with anniversary congratulations written in chocolate on the serving plate. Wow! I was really impressed, especially since I hadn't told them about our celebration. Maybe they overheard us talking.
The only downside was that all this pampering and good food was not free. As usual, you get what you pay for, and considering how great the meal was, it was worth the money. I will be back as soon as I can afford it.
