Pedigreed protégés

Original post made on Aug 16, 2018

Protégé offers two experiences: the dining room and the lounge. No matter where one sits, it's the same kitchen, the same attention to detail with friendly attentive service and Michelin-star quality food.

I have grave doubts that the 125 wine could be found at under 25. Really same vintage/year!? I doubt it.

This place is amazing. I have eaten at Protègè 4 times with my wife and it has been VERY good each time. The service is amazing. It felt like we were in a NYC restaurant with the professional staff. We ate at the bar once, and the bartender was fun and knowledgeable. The wine list is top notch, and fairly expensive. However, we had wine by the glass and the Beaujolais was much more like a “Baby Burgundy” and I believe it was $15 a glass. So, it did not break the bank. All in all, Protègè is a SPECIAL RESTAURANT, and one that Palo Alto has needed for many years!

In response to JOh, I do my research before I write. I did in fact find that particular wine, same grower, same vintage, available in the Bay Area for $22.50.

Sigh. Another great place I cannot afford to go to, replacing places I once could...
