I’ve always been a sucker for beautiful flower baskets but the ones outside of Le Clos this summer have me absolutely drooling with envy. The gorgeous red geraniums with a backdrop of ivy and creeping fig can just set the heart aflutter. The meals inside these walls do nothing to stop the palpitations as many of our guests will tell you. In fact, most of our guests know that if they’d like the sea bass in lemon buerre blanc, and warm chocolate cake for dessert, they just need to order the “Theresa Special”. They’ll ask if you want it “with or without escargot” because I don’t like to be predictable.
