Black Cat

Last night I went with Jill and her parents to Chat Noir for a nice Father’s Day dinner. Chat Noir is right by South Coast and the Orange County Performing Arts Center, making it easy to find nice places to wander either before or after dinner (especially if you need some time to let that martini wear off).

They have a nice selection of specialty martinis, with the Moulin Rouge being their signature drink. It was quite good, in fact. Not as strong as my normal rum and coke, but also not as candy like as some mixed drinks. I, however, went with a Wild Turkey Manhatan that knocked me on my ass. I don’t know what it was, could be that I hadn’t had much to eat earlier in the day, that I was tired, or what, but I’ve never had a single drink effect me like that.

The food was just as good as the drinks. I had Filet Mignon Stroganoff that is made with a mustard sauce instead of the more traditional cream sauce. It was quite good. Jill got scallops which I gather were good as well. Not being a scallop fan, I did not try them myself.

For dessert we had a souffle that was to die for. If you like chocolate, this is the dessert for you. It was giant, the four of us barely finished it. Some people think that the chocolate sauce overwhelmed the souffle, but I thought the souffle gave a very nice texture to the delicious sauce.
