Petit Robert Bistro

Went today for lunch with my dad, and we had a fantastic experience.

We each had a frisee salad to start and split the duck confit with toulouse sausage with braised cabbage for our entree. The salad was fresh and light: two large poached eggs served with frisee lettuce and bacon (not lardons, unfortunately, but still very tasty). The duck was out of this world...fell right off the bone upon touch...sausage was very savory, and cabbage salad was warm, crisp and tasty. We finished it off with the Gateau Petit Robert, a chocalate cake layered with ganache; white chocolate shavings on top. We split a bottle of fantastic Louis Latour Chardonnay. Bill ended up around $70 (with coffee).

The room reminded me of any of the millions of bistros in paris, and the staff all seemed to have french as their first language. It was a well dressed crowd for lunch (we were casual), and service was great.

My father and I have decided that this will now be our monthly outing.

Has anyone else been there yet?
