Birthday party at a cozy wine bar & restaurant

In Yuhsima famous as Yushima Tenjin Shrine, the god of academic, there is a cozy and delicious wine bar & restaurant named "Bouteille (ブテイユ)" run by a couple of a friend of my sister. The cuisine is French and Italian that suit wine very much! 

The other day, our family gathered at Bouteille to celebrate birthday of some member who were born in winter and spring. The set menu was served at JPY5.000 per person.First, we toasted with champagne and small starter!
Then, assorted cold appetizer was served. So good! Particularly, the original dressing on salad is super! I'd love to buy if it were sold. Maybe kind of grilled beef soup is used in the dressing. 
As hot appetizer, we enjoyed seasonal white asparagus with hollandaise sauce, poached egg and raw ham. The taste is very rich!
As second dish, pasta with firefly squid, field mustard and garlic. Tasty! 
This is the main dish (we could choose fish or meat). The meat dish was grilled lamb. The taste is sharp and distinct. For eating each dish, we selected a suitable bottle of wine from the Bouteille's walk-in wine cellar. The selection varies from reasonable one to expensive one and we can taste wines depending on our capacity to pay.
In the end, we celebrated again with a cake! (we brought this cake from another cake shop.) Thanks to good dishes, wines, chatting and cozy atmosphere of Bouteille, we had a very good time there!  Nice service and good character of the owner couple greatly contributed to the time.
Anyhow, the quality of cuisine is very higher around the Ueno area.
My rating is 4 out of 5. Gochiso-samadeshita!
