The cheese course features a thin piece of cow’s milk Comte, served with a nice touch of sheep’s milk cheese, mild acacia honey puddle, and white truffle toppings. The cheese course is yet another instance of Crepel’s flawless blend of ingredients assembled on the plate, and it’s much like a beautiful dress or bespoke suit matched with the right accessories.
The finale features a delicious mousse au chocolate with chocolate crumble toppings and beet sorbet, which is a great way to finish dining with style. This dessert is so delicious that you will step into the street dancing to hymns of joy.
Another great thing about dining at Porte 12 is that you enjoy great music from legends such as Frank Sinatra, Bill Withers, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Amstrong, and Simon and Garfunkel. Like most of the latest modern restaurants, Porte 12 has managed to pull off an elegant restaurant with white-tablecloth standards without using white table cloths. The elegant Porte 12 atmosphere offers a high contrast to the recent bare bone decor ideas.
