I've been intrigued by recent positive comments about L'Arome from trusted hounds. We've eaten here three times, as I recall. The first time, early on in its existence with an astute hound, we thought the tasting menu was pretty good at its price point. The second time, we chatted with people at the next table whom we had seen at Frenchie the night before, agreeing that the meal at L'A was heads above that at Frenchie. The third visit brought us crashing to earth with dishes that seemed conceived only to fill a slot in the menu at a predetermined cost, which was inflated by three boring desserts. We never returned.
Have we missed something in the last two years? (DH has suggested our going back but I have dug in my heels.)
