Normally, I would say to reserve Niche for a very special occasion, but with these set three-course dinners, you have more of an incentive to go "just because". The advantage of getting these emails is that you can wait until you see a menu you know you would enjoy.
We gambled a little bit because we made a reservation long before we knew what the menu was going to be, but it all worked out in the end, and there are actually two choices for the main entree as well as three options for dessert.

I think this might have been the easiest-to-eat Bibb salad I've ever had. My favorite part was the egg on top with the green goddess dressing. (OK, so that's two things.)

We both were eagerly looking forward to dessert and with two of us, we were able to order both of them. Of course, I pretty much devoured the gelato with chocolate sauce. I admit that I'm not a fan of vanilla anything (because it's not chocolate), but this was wonderfully rich with bits of vanilla bean. I don't have to tell you how good the chocolate sauce was I hope.
