Well, the back also reminded me, that I had gotten a year older not that long back and this year had tried out two interesting places for the occasion. This is the first of two taken out courtesy of co-workers and I shall tell you about where I went with the husband before the week is over.
This was take two at this place, I let my hosts choose although I am afraid the decision was made over an attractive waitress rather than Cyril Renaud’s food. Well, I guess the important thing is to actually get the customers in and we can then worry about the how.
The menu features french comfort food with a general touch of elegance, just what would appeal to someone on a day they are feeling indulgent. I had tried the fish sandwich that I ordered the last time that I was here and was absolutely blown away by the flavorful use of the herbs and the rosemary laced crisp french fries. However, to add something new I wanted the cauliflower soup. The lady serving us (this was not the one my companions had hoped for, alas!) tells me about the soup and half sandwich special, to which I told her that I did want the whole sandwich, here she repeats her original pitch making me feel like a horse.
The meal was finished with an absolutely wonderful dessert, tart, rich, pretty and satisfying complete with a candle! The bread pudding was topped with passionfruit ice cream somthing that will probably bring me back to this place.
Overall, the place is pricey but the food is a safe bet, if you want to give it a try.
