Les Elysées du Vernet: best value in town

souphie | Jul 4, 2007 09:36 AM

Just wanted to let everyone know that after having had the lunch menu at Les Elysées, I hereby pronounce it best value in town. Detailed review will follow but here's what I had for 59E:

Iced soup of melon with a mousse of pepper; well-served tourteaux with
a lobster gelee, lobster and vin jaune cream; a royale de foie gras,
araignée de mer, fresh almonds; a very well roasted canette breast
with peaches, foie gras, girolles, salsifis, and a cresson salad; a
positively delicious sorbet de caillé de brebis with olive oil and
vanilla; and then a modern style fraisier, light and sweet.

No revolution for sure, but man that was irreproachable and that was
cheap. They will do renovation work in August so I am ready to bet
that both prices and ratings will go up in september.
