Stopped in at Fond after seeing their Tuesday special advertised. Enjoyed 1/2 dozen oysters and a glass of rose. It is directly across from The Singing Fountain. Beautiful restaurant, atmosphere and upscale service.

Will keep this brief. Writing this review while savoring the remaining chicken liver mousse from our amazing 5 course tasting menu last night. From the impeccable table service to the finely crafted libations, a memorable gustatory experience all around. Can't wait to return.
