Fleur de Lys for Anniversary dinner

 We had a dinner at Fleur de Lys in San Francisco for our 8th Anniversary. This is the restaurant I have wanted to come for a long time.
Amuse Bouche was artichoke cold soup and carrot salad+ham+pea paste. The cold soup was very tasty. Artichoke spoke well in the creamy soup.
The carrot salad was so so. It tasted like chinese food. No offense but it was not so Frenchy for introduction.
We had four course meals. Here is mine.
SYMPHONY OF:Toasted duck ham & mozzarella “slider, ”French potato salad with white anchovy, “Faux gras” mousse, piquillo gazpacho
BACON CRUSTED SEA SCALLOPS:Black beluga lentils, pork belly, pickled shallots and harissa
OVEN ROASTED VENISON LOIN WITH TRUFFLED BABY BOK CHOY:Accented with a rich cocoa nib red wine reduction, spanish chorizo, cocoa tuile
A FANTASY OF CHOCOLATE & PRALINE PARFAIT:Served with Lucama ice cream and a homemade marshmallow napoleon
 And Steven's.

CHILLED DUNGENESS CRAB SALAD:With shavings of young vegetables, lobster infused vinaigrette, and lobster fondant with caviar
JUMBO LOUISIANA PRAWNS:Cream of artichoke, citrus salad, porcini oil, served with a tangerine sauce
KOBE BEEF CHEEKS, TOPPED WITH MUSTARD AND CORNICHONS:Smoked veal jus, sweetbread fricassee with truffle & spinach
CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE:Served with cherry and Kirsch ice cream
Everything was very tasty and presented very well. I loved the surprises when I put them in my mouth because the puree and the sauce are very well designed/cooked. Some of them are hard to tell what they are. It was exquisite!

We got a special dessert for our anniversary! So sweet. It was two macaroons and strawberry mousse with caramel light shade.
Happy 8th, Honey!! More great years to come :):)

Great service and great food. I give them 5 stars. Thank you, Mr. Keller.
Oh, and thank you for this wonderful dinner, Steven!!
