What do you all think of Melisse?

PaulF | Oct 4, 2005 08:27 PM

I've never been there.

Maybe I'm a fool, but I eat very little dairy -- just don't like cheese and butter and milk. Okay, I'm weird.

Anyway, I always think anything "French" is gonna have a lot of butter and cheese in it, so I never go.

But, I hear and read good things.

Now, here is why I want to try the restaurant:

I'm looking at my kid's soccer roster and what do you know? One of the kid's on his team's dad owns Melisse. He's the owner/chef whatever. This is a guy I shoot the shit with every Saturday.

Nice guy.

So, I'm thinking "now I'm friends with the guy. I gotta try his food."

So, any recs on what to get? Do you all dig the place?
