- Food: Classic French Fare
- Cost: $$$
- Wine / Cocktails:
After fabulous Hennessey cocktails with HennyMo (Cognac King Maurice Hennessey) and KJ, we adjourned to Balsan at The Elysian for amazing dinner fare.
We were tucked away in the back corner at the community table which was a perfect hiding spot so we could discuss wedding crushes, our favorite wines, HennyMo and our business cards.
We also got to see Joan Cusack’s personal Garage Sale items, which was a highpoint of our night.
The confit could have fooled me into thinking I was in France. Duck leg confit with green lentils, smoked ham and mustard. That sauce was divine. Going back there very soon just for this. If duck confit isn’t perfect, it’s such a disappointment. This was rich yet crispy and full of flavor. Obsessed. This dish was a discussion point for days.
They also serve my childhood favorite--Fish Sticks, and they are all grown up. Fish Goujonettes with lemon, parsley and remoulade.
