Best known for: Watch and learn as chef Gilles prepares your dinner!
You are first greeted by Chef Gilles and his wife Margarita who proceed to give you a small tour of the restaurant. You are then seated at the U-shaped bar in the intimate kitchen to begin the meal with pâté and Champagne. Chef Gilles then starts the meal with the freshest of ingredients, explaining the process in his humourous style and sharing his cooking secrets while you sip on white and red wine from his cellar. As the evening progresses, you taste the meal, learn the secrets and enjoy the company.
After desert, Chef Gilles rolls out the Armagnac cart and explains why it's different from Cognac. You are given the opportunity to taste a variety of vintages, costs and types of Digestifs. The evening closes with a tour of the cellar where you can purchase wine (Chateau Latour 1959 anyone?) and their mini gift shop where you can purchase the 'magic salt' to season any dish!

The Wine Cellar
Le Fort has an extensive wine cellar - I saw some Armagnac and Cognac bottles from 1973, 1968, right down to 1953! How many times in our life time do we get to sample such aged pleasures? Within this wine cellar are some 3,000 bottles! You will find some of the best brands and harvests of Mexican and French wines A large variety of red and white wines, champagnes, etc. The wine cellar is temperature controlled all year round to preserve the best quality of the wine.
Looking over their guestbooks, it's evident that the evening is always memorable.
