La Bourse et La Vie in the 2nd, is by now, on the food routes of many visitors to our fair city and with this morning's Figaroscope's listing of Daniel Rose's soon-to-open third kitchen, Chez La Vielle, situated across the alley from Spring, they recognize "l'Americain's" opening as the second significant cultural event of 2016 to look forward to.
But I'm getting ahead of myself, because we went to La Bourse et La Vie. All three of us decided to skip the firsts and went straight for the cod with cabbage, an entrecote/frites and fried quail; all cooked with Daniel's "neo-classique" vision and Marie-Aude's expert sourcing and exquisite care.
Desserts we shared were a lemon sorbet with olive oil, thyme and chocolate and the tart of today - a tarte Tatin. a wonderful meal we all enjoyed!
Our bill, with no bottled water but two bottles of wine and three coffees (offered), was 130 E for three, thus 86.66 E a couple.
