Two waiters and a waitress at Bord Eau - Shangri-la, Abu Dhabi
|One of my favourites, the beetroot.|
|PJ - self assured but so down to earth.|
|As usual, Chef was in fine form.|
This is it, I think. Where I liked Bord Eau after my first visit, I was now in love with it. Finally, I had encountered waiting staff to complement the fine dishes produced in the kitchen. At last, I had met and engaged with waiting staff who reflected the knowledge, efforts and perspective of the restaurant manager. Finally.
My duck is cold. In my heart I apologize to Chef, but I am celebrating too. The missing element to my previous dining experiences was there.
|Sommelier in the making. Ask for Saw on your next visit.|
My evening is complete, and so is my story: Two waiters and a waitress!
|Honey, adding more than just femininity to the waiting staff.|
Perhaps there was a poetic quality about the fact that my dishes were similar to what I enjoyed on my first visit to Bord Eau. ( http://bit.ly/1lpaKoY) On this night the waiting staff provided what I missed on that night; the so-called x factor or the missing ingredient, to use some cliches.
What started out as a predictable evening tuned out to be anything but that. It was an evening when something changed. Something really good got even better. Much better. Much, much better.
