DINING IN GLAMOUR
After working up an appetite with all of the shopping, my guest and I decided to take a break from the heat to enjoy some drinks and a bite to eat. We started by toasting with a couple of Vega Royal from their Champagne Cocktails section of their menu. This adult beverage is handcrafted with gin, mint, lime juice, and Champagne. The drink is citrusy, fizzy, full of flavor, yet refreshing. Next, we decided to order something to eat, so we each ordered the Baccarat Duck Breast Salad. This dish was beautifully presented on a Baccarat plate with baby kale, fresh tomato, thinly sliced duck breast, cucumber, walnuts, and tossed with a vinaigrette. All of the flavors combined truly complemented each other and satisfied our appetite.
After a light meal, I was ready to see what was on the dessert menu. Their Sweet Temptations section of their menu has a great selection to choose from. The dessert that caught my eye was their Red Fruits & Lavender Tiramisu, which I decided to order. It was presented to our table in a gorgeous Baccarat Chateau Tumber and layered with ladyfingers, mascarpone cream, fresh berries. The top layer is a pudding-like cream to which they print the word Baccarat on it. The dessert was perfectly balanced with sweetness from the cream, tartness from the berries, and the ladyfingers gives it a nice cakey texture. It has become my absolute favorite dessert. Baccarat Boutique BBar & Lounge is a hidden gem like no other. Don’t miss the opportunity to dine and shop here in luxury.
