Arriving to La Maquette, we were first seated on the first floor then we told the hostess that we would like to change our seats to 2nd floor. The views are amazing upstair. It would be nice seating in the patio outside too if only it was not raining.

This is so tasty!!! especially the scallop (so soft & sweet), I was turn off a bit because the saltiness in the veal but when I tried to eat both the veal & scallop & dip with sauce & mashed potatoes, it actually amazing delicious, so much nom nom ❤ ❤

The lobster and the veal look kinda similar. haha. I would say it is not as good as the lobster I ate in Fred’s Not Here. One of them was burned more than the other.

La Maquette have the best deserts out of three restaurants I tried this Summerlicious. And The butterscotch Ice Cream is the best, not only fulfilling my chocolate thirst, it is so fresh and make me to eat more even after the 2 previous courses .  The profiterole is genius too, i love how I can feel the chocolate kicks to my nose and the crunchiness and softness of the cream puff.
