  1. For the hors d'oeuvres, the trio of pates is wonderful. I also like the onion soup gratinee.

    1. I too like the trio of pates as well as the skirt steak.

      1. I love the escargot and hadmade pates for an appetizer. Salmon legs for an entree, or any of their traditional French dishes (Coq au Vin, etc.). Some people don't expect the cut of steak used for the steak frites, which is more traditional but not what is usually used in the U.S.

        For dessert, I like the ile flotant - but you can't go wrong with any of them. For sheer impressiveness, the handmade chocolate Tour Eiffel with the gateau Petit Robert wins a prize.

        1. re: kbw18

          I second the Ile Flottante for dessert, especially with the Graham 20 year tawny port.

        2. I was just there on New Years day and would definitely reccommend the Apple Tart Tatin. It is one of the best versaions of this classic I have ever had outside France. I also had the cream of leek soup (daily special) and a roast Cod with a lobster cream sauce (also a daily special)that was very very good.

          1. Sardine sandwich, pate sandwich, coffee/potato soup (sounds awful, I know, but it's yummy), pate trio, coq au vin, cassoulet, steak-frites with Bordelaise sauce, pomme dauphinois, tarte tatine (with that lovely cardamom creme fraiche).
