Robert's birthday dinner at Lumiere

Last night we went to celebrate rsc's birthday at Lumiere in West Newton. I'd read reviews before and when I saw a recent reference in the Globe because the chef, Michael Leviton, had been nominated again for a James Beard award I suggested it.

It was a most excellent meal; The Menu looked quite interesting; we had the Chef's Menu with wine pairings - one advantage of going this approach is that no decisions have to be made. It was five courses with an amuse bouche and whatever the equivalent at the end. Sometimes at good restaurants when you order tea you get lukewarm water and a box of tea bags; not so here. There was a nice pot and an egg timer to tell you when it was ready.
