1. The Bread: You don't want to forego the basket of bread here. All three varieties, from the crusty baguette to the pillowy raisin bread, you'll want to savor these with the fresh better it's served with.
2. The Mussels: Cooked in a garlic, white wine sauce, this huge pot of mussels satisfies! We were puzzled at first by the ketchup and mustard bottles the waiter set on our table prior to bringing out the mussels, only to learn that the dish is served a heaping side of crisp, golden French fries.
3. The Filet: It was cooked to perfection, topped with foie gras (which I wish I loved a little more, and if I were a bigger foie fan, then I'm sure I would've thought it was amazing) and served over a thin, crispy round of Brioche that fulfilled its purpose of soaking up the juices from the steak. It was cooked to perfection and served with a pretty arrangement of thick-cut fries.
4. The Souffle: The chocolate one. It's the size of your head and worth the 30 minutes it takes for it to come out of the kitchen. But no worries, the servers (ours was excellent, and now I'm mad at myself for not remembering his name) are good about giving you the heads up and letting you know when it's a good time to put in the order. It's everything I ever expected from a French soufflé. Warm, light, not overly sweet with a little bite from the granulated sugar they use to coat the ramekin to help the souffle rise, taken to the next level with a drizzle of creme anglaise. Silly us to think it might just be too much for two people.
