The Sofitel hotel recently hired a new chef for their restaurant, Chez Colette, a French brasserie. Culinary maestro Guy Reinbolt, a native of Alsace, France, asserts that people "eat first with their eyes", a statement plainly reflected in his beautifully presented creations. Aesthetics and flavor are sometimes mutually exclusive – but not here. Amazing that something so prettily presented tastes as good as it looks. A note for chocoholics: La Bourse, Sofitel's swanky bar and lounge area, serves a Chocolat Buffet Nitecap (after nine pm) - all the chocolate you can savor for just under $13! You may see us there, gorging ourselves on their signature goodies!
