It’s been far too long since Jon and I have connected downtown for lunch, but on Friday, he reminded me of our last lunch date by bringing home a marvelous taste of Sel de la Terre.
With a variety of menus available throughout the day (including a kid’s menu), Sel de la Terre offers French fare in a warmly appointed, casual brasserie atmosphere. The restaurant is lovely for sit down (the assiette de charcuterie with toasted brioche, mustard, and chutney first course is a must for anyone who enjoys pates and a variety of nibbles), and their entrance way boulangerie is a particular boon. To celebrate my finishing an important deadline on Friday, Jon picked up a couple of desserts for us to enjoy after Laurel was off to bed. Particularly divine was the chocolate mousse, constructed in a round mold on a thin layer of chocolate nut cake, with another layer of cake hidden inside the mousse.
