When choosing my restaurant week restaurant this year I was very picky and considered a few options. Noble American Cookery stuck out because of their website to me, I'm all about aesthetics. It was simple and the food looked beautiful. I then happened upon chef Cameron's blog where i read " Local farms who practice sustainability...I want to emphasize and encourage their usage on the menu. Our resources are the heritage of the restaurant. I want to be responsible. I want to limit waste, recycle, support. This is American Cookery. This is Noble." I fell in love (i'm into being environmentally sustainable and conscious) and the restaurant luckily lived up to my expectations. We arrived and there was a bar sort of seating area attached to the front, adorable, and we were taken upstairs. When we looked up we saw the glass between the rafters and thought it would be a great location during the day to see the sun and sky right through the ceiling. Our server came to greet us right away and was attentive and friendly. After we ordered the bread man came over and gave us three selections of breads for us to choose from ( sourdough, baguette, and olive oil) we each chose a different one. Our appetizers arrived being; heirloom tomatoes, watermelon, garden chili in a 50 year sherry and a crab puff, roasted bluefoot mushrooms with kobocha, mizuna, dried tomato and a pumpkin vinaigrette, and arctic char(fish) with sliced garden vegetables and corn juice. For our main courses we had a pork chop with potato dumplings and a tomato preserve, roasted valley chicken over summer squash casserole, and pan-roasted wild east coast striped bass with purple potato salad and virgin sauce. For dessert we had strawberry shortcake on a lemon biscuit and champagne sabayon and a chocolate lava cake with peanut butter inside with a side of pb marshmellow and berry sauce. Everything was amazing, our server was attentive, my friends also had coffee which they said was good, the ambiance was great, not too loud, not too quiet, beautiful furniture. As a whole the experience was wonderful. My friend and I have a rule not to go to the same restaurant twice but I will definitely break that rule for Noble.
