In a previous post I mentioned that I would report back on a group dinner at L’Inconnu.
This was a set menu as we were 45 people for a bday party…
The place itself is very nice, lacks a bit of color for my taste but for those who like “décor minimaliste” it really works.
I had the sweetbreads as an entrée and although I’m always reluctant to order them as I’m quite peculiar about the way they’re done, these were delicious. They were served with roasted mushrooms and what I was told was a balsamic butter.
My main course was a filet beef which was cooked to perfection and a nice red wine sauce, simple and delicious. I can’t quite remember the veggie accompaniment; however the meat was the highlight.
My boyfriend ordered the ravioli stuffed with duck and foie gras, I had a taste of these and almost regretted not having ordered this dish..
As for desert we didn’t get to try any because my friend ordered a cake which they served….The cake was a pièce montée from Patisserie Nancy (I believe that’s in NDG??) and this was quite a treat. Almost as good as the “choux” I’ve had in France!
Don’t know what the service is like on a regular night, but considering we were a large group (and quite rowdy! J ) the waitresses were quite accommodating.
