L'Express Menu Recommendation
So I'm taking a few friends to L'express tomorrow before they leave town and would like some recommendations. I heard they have pretty great seafood and really haven't had lobster in an obscene amount of time....but what is your favorite from past experiences?
PS. What's the attire?
Attire is casual--it's a crowded bistro. Mousse de foie de volaille is always a nice starter. Dh likes the tartare, I usually just go for steak/frites--safe but really nicely done. I have never eaten seafood there, but have often ordered their dore', which is usually very tasty.
Soupe au Poisson or the Mousse de foie de Volaille
Maybe the Verte aux pignons
and I am powerless to the tartare (Bien relevez). But the Canard au porto is very good too, as is the Saumon au cerfeuille.
A nice bottle of Ste Estephe wont hurt either, or a Bandol.
For dessert.. go for the cheese, to finish off what ever wine may be left.
"PS. What's the attire?"
Presently ? Socks, jeans and t-shirt; If I would be going to l'express, I'd put on a pair of shoes because it's raining!
As for food, L'express has everything, search a little bit, I think someone posted the menu a few days back. (see this topic : http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/543679)
There are also 1/2 dozen daily specials, erm, every day.
I usually go for the "Os à la moelle" and the "Tartare" or the "Carré D'agneaux".
If you're into wines, ask for the "2ème liste; it's bigger, has some nice bottles, not always more expensive.
