Foodie Files Jax Edition: Restaurant Orsay

I pretty much love food and having a sensory foodie experience. I will literally go to any restaurant, food truck, cafe,  establishment that sells food or drink, you name it in the name of trying out something new to titillate my tastebuds. This time around I had the great pleasure of visiting Restaurant Orsay located in the Avondale area which is also one of my favorite culture and eating spots in general in Jacksonville.

Can I just say that it was well worth the trip? From the cozy yet sophisticated ambience to dishes that are flavorful and pleasing to the palate to the knowledgeable and amazing service, this a great treat for a special occasion, date night, or just step outside of the ordinary. It’s fine dining chic with casual cozy appeal and the French style cuisine allows you to get a gourmet twist on some well-known dishes. Overall, I was pleased with my entire dining experience and definitely plan on returning very soon to indulge a little bit more. Here are some quick recaps from my trip. I wanted to surprise my mom and do something extra special for her birthday (who came into town to spend the weekend for her birthday so several dishes will be featured below.) I almost forgot that I didn’t get a chance to snap a picture of the lobster mac n cheese that we had as an appetizer but it was absolutely delicious and was a great start to the meal.
