Went to this place because I had to kill some time nearby and the very Frenchy wine list was appealing.
Nice balcony terrace. I ordered a glass of wine and they brought out an amuse, some sort of tomato cream with a few little vegetable bits, very good.
Terrine of foie gras was classic and excellent. They even have Monbazaillac by the glass. The toast was totally crisp. Really just perfect if you’re into that sort of thing. Let’s pretend that compote de mangue was not there.
Partially consumed charcuterie board. All good, pâté was as classic as the terrine.
Oeufs brouilles a la truffe: glorious. As good as I’ve had in France. Technically perfect.
I was surprised to find that this is a chain. I assumed some deranged French chef opened the place and had no plan to pander to American tastes.
