Another blooger and I went and had sometrouble deciding which of the many choices to have.
My friend went with the menu and started off with three marvellous slices of foie gras with raisin bread which the fig compote and salt crystals set off perfectly; then had a chicken breast with morilles and asparagus that were very good; and topped it all with cheesecake in a glass with a mango coulis. I meanwhile was most content with a big sweetbread with capers and carrots.
Our bill, with a bottle and 2 glasses of wine, no bottled water and 2 coffees, was 99.40 E
Go? If over in Embassyland, it's a very pleasant haven. And so quiet I didn't even pull out my decibel-meter.
