Last month we ate at the Loft, having a nice lunch. Andreas had a chicken sandwich with fries, and I had chicken salad and mushroom soup. The soup was really creamy, almost too much so. It could have stood a little less blending. The salad was nice, although I wish they'd substitute a boiled egg for the runny poached one. I prefer the rest of my salad not to be covered in egg yolk.

What you can't see in all these pictures is the smell - the whole building smells like brandy. The barrels are permeable, since they're wood, and the aroma itself is enough to get you a little tipsy. This is how they age their cognac at Kvint. The lowest quality is aged three years. Some are aged up to fifty.
