Mirabelle has been on my list of possible places to try ever since we moved to the area. When I found out that they were offering Easter brunch, I decided to give the place a try. Unfortunately the two dishes on their online menu that I was interested in was not offered once we looked at the menu. Service was fine but not that great.  When we finished our dishes, there was a long period of time before they cleared our plates.


Grilled Rainbow Trout fricassee of Florida rock shrimp and mushrooms, curry vinaigrette
This was one of the best trouts I have had. The skin was perfectly crisp and delicious and I am not a big fish skin fan. It was cooked perfectly also. The rock shrimps and mushrooms added umami to the dish. I had to give half of it to my husband and that was not an easy task. The things I do for him!

Ora King Salmon slow cooked with a black truffle, sauce foyot almond and spring herb crust, poached egg, sauce foyot
Even though I encouraged my husband to get the famous burger, he ordered the salmon. He was very unhappy with the size of the dish. The half that I ate seemed fine. I did not taste any black truffle.

Warm Rhubarb Galette pistachio frangipane, rhubarb compote, roasted rhubarb, vanilla ice cream
There has been such a hype about the dessert menu at Mirabelle and I was really looking forward to it. Once I read the dessert menu, I was underwhelmed. The tart was tasty with a buttery crust and flavorful rhubarb but the portion was a little on the small side.
