Cold weather is upon us so it is now time to find some fun indoors activities. As I have many interest I wanted to pay a visit to the Van Gogh to Kandinsky exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts. Since I figured I should have enough of the afternoon to view the collection I decided to do brunch before the visit. A friend suggested we should go to La Société and I thought it would be fun since I had never been before.
When I entered I was pleased with the look of French bistro of the place, it reminded me of some spots I use to hang out in NYC. Looking over at the menu we decided to start off with some oysters. The Malpeque and Glacier Bay especially that were excellent, especially since it was past noon and we paired it with a great Riesling discovery the Deinhard Green Label 2013. Moving on to our main course I was debating choices but after asking our waiter he confirm my choice as it is one of their talk about dish the Lobster Benedict. It was truly amazing an contrary to been served on an English muffin it was served on bread that gave me more the feel of a grilled cheese, but don`t get me wrong as much as I enjoy a grilled cheese this had nothing to do. All together I really enjoyed my experience and the staff was very attentive and courteous. I had made a reservation because I don`t like surprises but there was room available for walk-ins.
We then headed out to the museum, on a Saturday there was a little bit of a line but it moved quickly. If you’re into paintings you will enjoy this exhibit as it shows diffrerent artists at at differrent stage of their career. If you don’t want to rush through you will need about 2-3 hours to see everything, unless you are going to hit the permanent exhibit too. One of my ”Coup de Coeur” was an artist I was not familiar with but whom I really lik the colors he used was Paul Signac. After finishing the visit of the Masters, we finished the show with the Warhol exhibition. I was not a huge fan but it was interesting to see all the different field his work was used for. If you are looking for something different to do this is a good way to spend a cold winter day.
