THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED La Maison on Telfair Restaurant Review

: La Maison on Telfair is a central establishment in Augusta's fine dining scene. Before dinner, we like to a stop in at Veritas, the restaurant's tapas lounge (not open during Masters week), an intimate spot for a lighter repast, such as a cup of she-crab soup or lobster bisque. Complement the Spanish-inspired chicken croquettes with a glass of white porto splashed with tonic water and a notch of fresh lime. A centerpiece of La Maison's appetizer menu is foie gras, presented with sautéed apple and pear. Among the classic dishes are mussels, escargots and frogs’ legs Provençale. Mains we've enjoyed over the years include several game dishes, from ostrich to kangaroo, but lately have found the fish particularly appealing. A special, the Hawaiian wahoo with a mango salsa, is ideal for a warm evening's meal. For dessert, try the house-made sorbets, especially the palate-refreshing lime. La Maison's wine list is a tour de force, with selections from all over the wine-producing world. Count on a glass of Sauternes (Château Doisy-Védrines) to pair with the foie gras.
