    got 3 desserts: (1) rice pudding - do not recommend - very mushy/mealy. (2) lemon sorbet - VERY lemony! so so and (3) crepe - amazing!!! the winner

      the tomato soup with puff pastry is fantastic.

        Hi, here are the recommendations verbatim from one of my best friends. First-rate were the salmon carpaccio, leek salad. Tomato soup in puff pastry which was excellent. Mike said he could have consumed a gallon of the soup. Sole Meunierre, light, with lemon and garlic mashed potatoes. They didn't have dessert but are dying to go back, so that's says something. Hope this helps.

          escarole salad, steak, foi gras (rich -- like foi gras!) -- desserts are fine. Try to get a table on the third floor

            The pigs feet salad is a must! Of course, the name in French is much more romantic...
