Chrysler Museum, Harlequin Cafe|
We drove up to Auburn Hills for the
Walter P. Chrysler Museum.
The building seems quite small compared to The Henry Ford, but the cars are well-chosen and in
excellent shape. Perhaps our favorite as the
1953 Chrysler Special,
designed by Ghia of Turn,
in a gorgeous blue with volutuous front and rear fenders and an intriguing grill.
We had a very nice dinner at the
A quaint location, but the food was very nicely done.
Ben ordered a 1996 Charles Heidsick champagne, but Chef Sharpe was out, and we saw him drive off in a car!
He came back shortly with a 1993 Taittinger Comtes de Champagme. The rest of our dinner:
B/M: Gumbo soup (spicy!)
Max: Scallops, barbeque beurre blanc sauce
Ben: Lamb noisettes wrapped in bacon
Max: Wilted spinach salad
Ben: Caesar salad
Max: Quail stuffed with raspberries, blueberries
Ben: Duck breast, potatoes, haricot verts
Max: Valrhona chocolate torte with chocolate mousse filing
Ben: Sweet potatoe pie
On the way back to the hotel we saw the very strange Lexus billboard below.
We figured out the mystery a few weeks later when Lexus introduced a new vehicle at
the 2004 North American International Auto Show (hover over the billboard).
