Sounds like a great meal. I envy anyone, anytime they have a truly outstanding meal. Funny that you should say that you were slightly disappointed in the desserts. I have seen this trend recently, both in my dining and in friends experiences. It seems to only happen at the most high-end of restaurants. As I stated in my review of "Gary Danko", the desserts served there would have been considered great at any other restaurant, but after such a sublime meal, they came across as merely be adequete. I think that after such a great meal, our expectations become so high (either conciously or subconciously) that the pastry chef has a very difficult job to measure up to, and surpass the standards that the chef has set with 5 courses that came before.
