Bicyclette in the old sotto space is finally open. The plan is to first start with a bistro on the first floor and then later in the summer open up the second floor with a tasting menu only format.
service was friendly and on point. the food was as good as republique but leaning more towards classical french. there’s a section on the menu called “hors d’oeuvres” and it’s basically stuff you can eat with margarita’s baguettes. and it may be my favorite section on the menu, I could have just eaten that all night it was really good.
p.s. great seeing fellow intrepid ftc’er @J_L out in the wild, hope you enjoyed your meal.
baguette and rodolphe le meunier butter
preserved vintage 2015 sardines
I may or may not have eaten this with tons of butter @JeetKuneBao
duck liver mousse, pudwell farms blackberry gelée
deliciously buttery and spreadable. I can’t believe it’s not foie gras
soft egg in the shell, smoked sturgeon, kaluga caviar
a play on eggs on eggs in an egg
caramelized onion tarte tatin, goat cheese
damn this was incredible, perfectly sweet caramelized onions, on top of a flaky buttery crust with enough goat cheese to balance it out. highlight of the night.
boulliabaisse, rock cod. mussels, clams, prawns
every piece was not surprisingly perfectly cooked. pro tip, save some of your toasted baguette to dip into your broth at the end. only quibble was the broth was a bit salty.
