Well, I and we went back for meal #3 today and it was just not the same as #1 and #2.
What was wrong?
Well, it's hard to pin it down.
As Atar said "it's as if another chef was cooking today." The veal tongue was so-so and the spicy guacamole helped but not enough, though Colette thought her gaspacho was equal to her last one.
Then two of us had the quail special that was again so-so, the lotte (8 E supplement - Why?) with veggies and rabbit were not raved about either.
We decided to call it a day then; the bill with 4 coffees, 2 wines and no bottled water was 159 Euros for four.
Go again? Hoo boy, let's see how the topic on the eGullet France Forum goes.
