How much for dinner at Le Violon d'Ingres?
Is Catherine still in the front of the house? We have not been there in three or four years but like ftdat06 first went soon after it opened ('99?) and nine or ten times after. She was an absolute ambassador for her restaurant, especially wonderful for making everyone feel special. I miss Violon and look forward to returning.
OK, I have my receipt from 03 Jan 2009:
1 Chateldon = 7e (had 2 only charged for one)
2 Roederer Rose' = 30e
1 Supreme de Bar = 27e
3 Poulet de Bresse Roti = 102e
1 Morgon = 39e
3 Souffle caramel au beurre sale' = 39e
1 Poelee du fruits = 11e
2 Muscat de Rivesaltes = 16e
3 Cappucino = 15e
1 Double expresso = 5e
I ate there about a month ago. Price is 49e for 3 courses. There is no pressure to order 3 courses. Separately I think the breakdown was something like 13e per entree, 26e for main, 10e for dessert. A glass of champagne for an aperitif was 13e, wines start in the high 30s per bottle and go up from there. They have several wines by the glass. I think Chateldon water was 6e per litre and they only charged for the first one. Some on this board will argue against it but I really like this restaurant, have eaten there maybe 10 times over the years from back when it was a 2 star when it first opened to now.
