So, after a period of about 5 years to the day, I found myself again in Reno and so went to Beaujolais for dinner, just as I had 5 years back. The restaurant has moved to bigger digs which are by the river on a wooded avenue, very pleasant. A few outdoor tables are available as well and I was tempted tonight by a mellow evening but ate inside. There is now a full tilt bar available at which you can sit and look into the kitchen. We sat by the window looking out to the river, though. The bar knows what’s up: the Negroni was properly made and fulsome as was a large Campari and soda. And while the meal was very good and the wines very nice, I must say that its quality has slipped a bit from before. Water under the bridge, I know, but still…. The seared foi gras was nice though not quite with the sear it might have had (done a little fast?). Had to ask for bread with this which should not have had to do. Bacon-wrapped dates were fine; not much to do with there. The quails were well cooked and like all quail, something you get into with both hands; knife and fork leave too much behind. The steak frites was generic, fine but nothing to write home about. The wine list is now much deeper and quite good, however. Come with 4 or more and play in the wine list! The open wines were also good though the Beaujolais was ice cold when served; that needs correcting tout de suite! Service was noticeably slow but attentive when there; perhaps need an extra hand on deck? Final word is that the place still does well but the kitchen needs some attention to detail.
