The Majestic

This is a picture of Vince's lunch at the Majestic in Alexandria. Fresh green beans with bacon as a side dish and Chicken liver mousse with crostini and poached figs. Everything was really tasty, but the figs stood out among the rest. The were juicy and sweet with a thin, crispy layer of caramelized sugar across the top.
I ordered a B.L.T with arugula instead of lettuce. What a great (and recreate-able) idea!
P.S. Loved the retro feel of the dining room.

what did the chicken liver mousse taste like?

Arroz con Mango said...

Kind of sweet, kind of salty, really rich, but because it was mousse light and airy.
