A small "Patagonia" dessert brings fresh, soft swirls of browned Italian meringue encasing layers of pistachio cake and dulce de leche ice cream; blackberries, blueberries, and dabs of passion fruit sauce dot the plate. Choose that over a trio of teeny key lime tartlets — too small and stiff to bring any real satisfaction.
Service is smooth, knowledgeable, and so personable you might think you're in the dining room of a friend's house. It begins with an amiable greeting at the door and carries through with caring attitudes from the waiters. Sometimes you might have to wait longer than you'd prefer for the next course, but that occurs in the homes of friends too. You let it slide. Because the chef is really good. And the waiter is really good. And therefore dinner at the Dining Room is really good. It is that simple.
