Marquesa - Key West, FL

Blue Cheese Gnocchi with Duck Confit Sauce.  The blue cheese really stands out in a complementary way to the amazingly rich sauce.  A winner of a dish.  4.5

Grilled Prime Shoulder Filet: Wonderful pan sauce that was peppery and delicious.  The shoulder filet cooced perfectly with a nice crust.  Delicious mashed potatoes with a deep flavor all its own.  4.5

Vegetarian Feast: Risotto with corn and saffron, sweet pea purses, stewed tomato, onion and garlic, rainbow cauliflower, green beans and a bunch of other unique and exciting bites.  4.00

Chai Tea Creme Brulee: Rich and dark with fresh blueberries, strawberries and raspberries on top.  The sugar was a little dark, but kind of complimented the flavor of the Chai custard.  4.00

This was a great restaurant that highlights a cerebral menu that takes you to new places with your palate.  This is a contrast to Hogfish (reviewed earlier) which excites you on a more visceral level.  Both are exhilerating food experiences in their own way.
