7.2 La Table du 11 in Versailles has been open for a couple of months and already they are turning eager diners away. We came, recommended by the same couple who turned us on to L'Axel in Fontainebleau yesterday; they are sure finding interesting places this Spring. The place is lovely with a fresh product menu for lunch (left) and interesting sounding items for dinner (right side).
The Chef (one Jean-Baptiste Lavergne-Morazzani) who worked for Gordon Ramsey down the road, started us off with beignets of minced ham with a lovely sauce and we ordered up some Bordeaux to go with them.
Our chauffeur/friend ordered the egg with petit pois and a hefty slice of brioche and Colette and I both had the carpaccio of bonito with shaved raw asparagus, carrots and other veggies that had some marinated zip to them.
Then our driver had the farm chicken with shaved asparagus and cooked asparagus that she found too salty. We had the raie with a delicious tiny squash tempura and raw squash; all quite tasty.
The dessert consisted of cherries in three forms, one with espilette. With coffee came the nicest chocolate truffles.
Our bill with no bottled water, very nice bread (we saw it being delivered just as we sat down), their own Savora butter and 1.5 bottles of wine, was 106.60 E a couple.
