I guess I had a French weekend!

So in my recent blog I talked about my Mother's Day trip to Petit Louis. Completely forgot I went to Brasserie Tatin Saturday evening.

I've been there a couple times. Always sat in the bar with a couple drinks and an appetizer. This time I went for the full meal. There were 3 people in my party. 2 of us ordered the Prix Fix menu for $38.50 each and the other went the a la carte route.

We shared the frisee salad which was good. I had a salad that consisted of tartlet topped with an olive tepenade, roasted grape tomatoes and watercress. This was pretty bland, but the tomatoes and olives had good flavor. One had the lentil and asparagus salad. This tasted like nothing. Had no flavor what so ever. Didn't even taste like it was seasoned with salt or pepper. Lastly, one ordered the French onion soup. You would think in a French restaurant, this would always be delicious. Well...IT WASN'T. The soup was again, bland. Tasted sweet with no onion flavor and barely any onion in the crock. Not much cheese to top off the small crouton at the top either. A complete disappointment.

On the the entrees...I had the Duck breast which was delicious. One had the surf and turf which consisted of beef medallions and shrimp with a demi glace and a risotto. She definitely enjoyed it but it wasn't phenomenal. One had the NY strip steak with roasted potatoes and again, this was good but it was nothing spectacular.

For dessert we had the chocolate lava cake, which was delicious but very small. We had the Tart Tatin, which is their signature dessert. Again, good, but the caramel sauce tasted like it was almost burnt. Lastly we had a hazelnut mouse dessert which was blah. I have nothing to say about it.

All in all it wasn't a bad meal. The best part was the 3 glasses of wine each of us had!
