  1. Thank you for that fabulous review and the mouthwatering pictures, Souphie! I have directed my colleagues from the 2007 Class of the Haute Etudes du Gout ( to your site to experience your inspirational review.

    My meal at La Cote d'Or (as it was then known) in 99 was one of the best of my life, and your review has intensified my longing to return.

    Milles mercis!
