Coretta in the 17th continues to provide wonderful food and terrific service. We went with two dear ex-pats who had never been and were willing co-consumers with us. We arrived a bit before the appointed hour and had two glasses of lovely Apremont wine and the amuses of shrimp, asparagus and a mousse; delicious!
None of us were up to a first so we all went for a main and dessert: a piece of cod, some monkfish, joue de boeuf and sweetbreads; all with different vegetables and parsnip "chips." Each of us (except the friend who had the beef) were served a small portion of a sauce - each one different and delicious. Everyone was ultra-happy.
For desserts, our two friends chose the chocolate delight, Colette had a big brioche, served with a dollop of ice cream and a smear of caramel sauce, and I went with a pear poached in sangria - terrific. Plus we then had mignardises filled with more chocolate.
Our bill with a bottle of Cotes de Rhone Villages and 3 glasses more, plus delicious bread and butter and three coffees, was 215 E or 107.50 E a couple.
