Lobster Spring Rolls
We started with a great selection of appetizers, which our great server Michelle

and shoestring potatoes, certainly a great starter and I did not know that
a Mussel Chowder could taste this good!
Our server Michelle
Our server Michelle was impeccable, and also help us with our choice of wines, starting with the Cakebreak Cellars, from Napa, and a selection of 3 champagnes:
The Chandon Brut Classic, Moet & Chandon Nectar Imperial
and Piper-Hiedsieck Brut.
