I LOVE D&L Bistro, and it has very little to do with the fact that I'm friends with the owner's daughter. ~.^ The food is exceptional, and the atmosphere and service is par with the food. The small size of the restaraunt lends to its intimacy and its ambiance, which definitely enhances the dining experience.
The food is absolutely superb! My absolute favorite item on the menu is the duckling breast. Prepared to the chef's preference, the breast is a beautiful, buttery medium rare and the tender meat practically dissolves in your mouth, with a sweetness added by the wine reduction that it's cooked with. And I never leave without ordering their tiramisu. While deviating from a traditional recipe by adding a touch of Grand Marnier liquor, the addition is highly complimentary. Despite the caffeine from the espresso, this dessert never fails to send shivers down my spine as it melts on my tongue and leave me sweetly satisfied and mellow.
It richly deserves the title of Most Romantic Restaraunt, and it'll remain my boyfriend's and my Valentine's destination for a long time to come.
