The Elephant Walk

I used to drive past the Waltham location of this restaurant every day on my way to work. I never ventured in because it looks so fancy inside. It wasn't until a colleague and his wife recommended the restaurant that I decided to give it a go. The prices are quite reasonable, and the food is fantastic.

Timbale
"Salade de Timbale au Chevre - A timbale of Vermont goat cheese tossed with seedless grapes, sweet Moroccan dates, diced Bartlett pear and walnut; on a bed of baby greens."
50mm f/1.4G @ f/2.8

Saumon
"Saumon à la Crème de Champignons - Atlantic salmon filet pan-roasted with sautéed Yukon gold potato, asparagus and a shitake mushroom lemon cream sauce, garnished with crispy shaved parsnip."

Roquefort
"Steak Grillé, Sauce Roquefort - Grilled flat-iron steak with a creamy Roquefort sauce, crispy potatoes and a watercress salad with balsamic vinaigrette and shallot."

For the photo nerds -- both of the last two images were taken with the 24mm f/1.4G.
