L'Arcane in the 18th had its front window wide open in this splendid weather and Koon's dogs on the tables. Our welcome was so warm, it matched the weather outside. Once again, we went with the 3 dish "menu" at 32 E.
We started off with a clever amuse bouche with tiny pieces of shrimp on top of a wafer above a three partitioned soup-sauce, then for mains chose between fish and meat: Colette thought her dish was the best but we others who had the lamb three ways thought ours was terrific; then a parade of desserts covering everything from avocado with espelette to kiwi fruit and crème brulee.
Our bill, with a bottle and 2 glasses of wine and 3 coffees (offered because we were bumped from last week), was 160 E or 80 E a couple.
