A few weeks ago Delphine Alcover of the Bistro Volnay, which she and Magalie Marian also run, invited four of us who were dining at the Mothership to see it a few days before it opened and we were wowed. Since then, Adrian Moore predicted that it would be the "most talked about opening," Laidback called one dish extraordinary and Simon and Berger used the quotes in my header.
Said hostess/co-owner greeted us warmly and immediately supplied us with geneous portions of piggy matter along with which we had two bottles of the very wine she recalled us having at the Bistro Volnay.
While one of us ordered the foie gras we were invited to share it and it was lovely; as well, the Medoc special - grenier medicain - pigs' feet and stomach re-made with garlic and spices, was delicious.
Then 2 of our crew of 5 had cod and monkfish, which my camera balked at, so you'll just get a blurry look at the cochon du lait and veggies the other 3 of us loved.
For the finale, three of us shared a rather banal baba au rhum, but all of us indulged in the mignardises and coffee. And I should note that like Laidback, I too couldn't tell the difference between the doors to the lady, the tiger and the bathroom.
The bill, per couple, with a bottle of Chateldon, amounted to 112.80 E a couple.
Go? After all the buzz, you gotta; especially in that Bombinette exquise, which I guess we'd call a "little deuce coupe."
