Couple weeks ago, I revisitted this place after a long absence. Lets get to the details.
Bread: it's allright, nothing spectacular. Just good french bread.
Creme de Tomate en Croute : Basically tomato soup encased in puffed pastry on top. Very nice, piping hot, big serving enough for two, not too sour, just perfectly executed. The puffed pastry is tasty and perfect compliment to the soup. This is one of their signature dishes. Nothing to complain here at all.
Pieds de Cochon et Haricots Verts (Pigs Feet and Haricots Verts Salad): tender and boneless chunks of pigs feet. It's a cold dish. Taste a slight vinegar. I did find a small piece of bone - suppose to be boneless. I would not order it again - not because of the bone but just not my taste maybe.
Lamb dish (don't remember the exact name): taste too gamey for me. Strong lamb flavor - maybe a little too strong. Again, not my favorite.
Service: very good but nothing to rave about. My water was not refilled for a while. And the waiter was not exactly helping me to choose the best from the menu even when I ask him to. I have to get it out of him myself.
I guess it's getting harder and harder to please me lately. But my wife also concurs with me. So, I am not the only one. And usually, my buddies also concur with me.
