Charlie Trotters

Wonderful dining experience. Patty at Earthy Delights got us reservations, and "over the top" service. Comped a generous white truffle shaving on one of the dishes. Shirley went with the Veggie tasting menu, Grand Menu along with the wine pairings. Waiting for our taxi, we got a tour of the kitchens.
