montrachet, 224 given tce, paddington

a last minute dinner get-together was how my recent visit to montrachet came about.  i have dined at montrachet before & loved it...on this recent occasion my boss suggested we head to montrachet on a spur of the moment type of thing...so a table was reserved via mobile phone & there we were on a wednesday night @ 8:30pm sipping champagne & deciding what to order from montrachet's new autumn menu....the restaurant was very busy & our waiter, max canche, was quick to attend to us & continued looking after us for our entire sitting.  max has been with montrachet since they opened 6 1/2 yrs ago.

several dishes were ordered around the table including...
  • fricassee de champignons
  • carpaccio de boeuf,
  • saumon fumé farci aux crabe (manuka smoked salmon & fresh crab terrine served w tomato/ avocado salsa
  • fruits de mer aux cheveux d’ange (pan fried fresh green prawns & scallops w olive oil, tomato, garlic, fresh herbs & cognac served on angel hair pasta
  • salade verte
  • escallope de veau savoyarde (seared escallope of veal grilled w smoked ham, tomato & raclette cheese),
  • bouillabaisse
  • and finally...some fromage!  morbier, bûche d’affinois, delice de fromi
montrachet is an absolute institution in brisbane.  their food is superb!  after my 3rd champagne i imagined we were sitting in paris @ a bustling bistro about to walk the french streets...

last time I went to Montrachet, I had fabulous service but my dinner wasn't as fab. Am hoping to go back soon, maybe to try out the Autumn menu so that this can be rectified.

After I initially commented I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and
from now on each time a comment is added I recieve 4 emails with the same comment.
Perhaps there is a means you are able to remove me from that service?
Thanks!
