Les Amis group’s latest venture, Macaron is a dessert restaurant that purports to give great choices with its four-course, six-course, nine-course and 15-course degustation menus, from which you pick your appetizer, entrée and desserts (they don’t take a la carte orders). On a weekend evening, the restaurant was relatively empty. The décor was somber, with weird tree branch structures and dark tables. Our king salmon tartare appetizer was okay, but nothing fabulous. Our two entrees—pan fried magret duck breast and meitaiko spaghetti were also disappointing—the duck breast was very tough, while the spaghetti was too dry. Our chocolate sorbet dessert was quite delicious with crunchy bits in the ice cream. The two dessert glasses—the raspberry granite and the vanilla ice-cream—were very average and a tad too sour. The grand desserts—violette and one, two and tea, were innovative, but the latter was chocolate overkill. We love desserts, but this meal is overly exorbitant. The inconsistent quality and rigidity of the courses, and the slighty listless service also left much to be desired.
