Aqua, SF

So, Aqua was ok, I mean, it wasn't the greatest, but it wasn't bad. Thank God I ate there before I went to French Laundry though. Best course: Parmesan-Black Pepper Souffle. Worst course: tie between Smoke Sturgeon & Caviar "Bombe" (WAY too lemony) and Tuna & Foie Gras Mosaic (bad quality tuna and foie gras).
