Blackstone, with its understated black decor and warm atmosphere, opens on to the cozy library and reception area of the hotel with which it is affiliated. The starters set the right tone balancing between a dynamic, fresh veal carpaccio with grenadine and a smooth, melt-in-your mouth foie gras carpaccio with dates and halva. The main courses keep up the pace with a slightly tart, crispy filet of perch with pistachios and lemon, and lamb chops with almond and raisin rice. To finish, the overly generous chocolate sushi, could have been creamier and lacked distinctive flavors. A lovely place with some very skillfully prepared, attractively presented dishes, Blackstone offers a gastronomic experience with an interesting range of nuances, flavors, and textures.
