Dinner At Maximilian's Pub

We went, for the first time, to Maximilian's Pub on Decebal.  It was good, and we stayed for several hours.  There were about ten of us.  The food was excellent, and we had a wonderful time.  Lots of beer, lots of wine, and lots of talk.  So, for the wine... someone else and I split a Fautor cabernet sauvignon.  The wine had a "soft" feel to me, and a long finish.  I'm not good about the whole hints of thing, but I do know it was very little minerals, which was a good thing as far as I'm concerned. 

We split some appetizers.  The only one I got a picture of was half the plate of chicken wings.  I had zeama, and it seems the restaurants around here are deciding it's better to cook it using white meat only and having a good spice to it.  That's great news.  

I had duck breast with berry sauce.  It even came with a baked apple.  You know how duck can sometimes taste greasy and even a bit stringy?  Neither was the case here.  The duck was tender, flavorful, and beautifully presented.  Andreas had something called rabbit ragout.  Rabbit is on a -lot- of menus here.  It's something Andreas enjoys, and he said this was particularly good.

 Three of us split three desserts.  They were chocolate lava cake, peach pie, and apple puff - in reverse order of the pictures.  We agreed that the apple was best.  The peach pie only had peaches on top.  Inside was apples.  The chocolate cake was very, very dense and very, very right but not very, very chocolate.  Cappucino was good too!
