Le Monde review

piccola | May 18, 2006 08:27 PM

I love it when my parents visit because we get to try all sorts of restaurants... :-)

We went to Le Monde (B'way and 113 or so) for lunch today because we wanted to sit outside. Service was great: we got served in French (our first language) and in a friendly manner, even though I asked for three substitutions on my meal.

My dad is a bread fanatic, so he inspected the bread basket with care. It passed: the bread was warm and crusty, with a light, air-pocketed dough. My dad also loved his grilled veggie sandwich, though Mom and I thought the accompanying fries were too limp.

My mom had the endive and roquefort salad, a huge and hearty bowl that was as pretty as it was tasty. (She did, however, find that the beer was WAY too expensive - $7 to $17.)

I had the pumpkin and wild mushroom omelet, egg whites only (sub #1), no bacon (sub #2), with salad instead of fries (sub #3). It was one of the thickest, fluffiest omelets I've ever had. The pumpkin was caramelized and the mushrooms crispy. I do think they overdid the butter a little, but overall one of the best restaurant omelets I've had.

Don't know how much the bill was, but it was def. under $15 pp.
