petit plats for RW?

Anyone been? any recommendations?

  1. I haven't been for RW (and am not sure if the deal really works out to getting you ahead. It's been awhile since I've been but I think you can usually get a meal for around $30, but you can always double check on their menu), but I've always remembered enjoying the roast chicken.

      elyssa - would you recommend ardeo or lavandou or dino for restaurant week? i've been to (and enjoyed) dino. I haven't been to either lavandou or ardeo. I want to stick to that area (woodley/cleveland).

        I went to Ardeo 2 nights ago and it was excellent. I've been meaning to write up my review but have been busy. The entire meal was very good had been a number of years since I've been there and I didn't know what to expect. My only little complaint was that I felt a little rushed---no time between appetizer and entree and a little time before the dessert came after the entree. But it wasn't really a huge deal. It's RW so that's a little expected. (Plus we had a 6:30pm reservation, so they probably were hoping to get at least 1 more seating in before the end of the night).

        I haven't been to Lavandou and haven't seen a RW menu (could you find one?) so I can't really speak to that.

        I would say Ardeo is probably a better value over Petit Plats. And if you've never been this might be a good chance to see if you like it enough to return after RW.
