It's a happy place for indulgence, which is of course why we were there.
The meal began with amuse-bouches of a croquette of cod, crab bouillon with diced vegetables, and tiny tempura whitebait.
The stated purpose of the amuse-bouches is "pour vous mettre en appétit," but although they disappeared faster than a speeding simile, our appetites needed no help. I led off with one of the menu's classics, a delicate, lighter-than-air mousse of ham.
Next up was a roast filet of beef, accompanied by a parade of adorable (and good) little vegetables. We seem to be seeing a lot of young vegetables, but it is spring.
And dessert; I had a perfect lime soufflé with lime/mint/coriandre sorbet
and Himself indulged in another classic, poached white peaches.
Coffee, bonbons, truffles. As we left, it was raining.
We didn't care.
