    "I would strike La Braisiere....."

    After the NYT article by Jacqueline Friedrich I went twice.

    Credit where credit is due dept: she was right about Chez Michel, Au C'Amelot + Le Pré Verre tho'.

        Thanks: I went twice and moved on to other things (I guess I missed the "wow" factor).

      I have been twice, last visit in January 2009. I like this restaurant quite a bit. It is a husband cooking, wife running the front kind of arrangement, foods from the SW. They have a nice house aperitif to start with, champagne, with a whole prune soaked in Armagnac in the glass, and a little bit of orange which I like. They also have very good first course that is a potato / foie gras / girolle terrine which is really good. Last visit I had a very nicely done lievre royale. Prices are very reasonably for the quality, plenty of affordable wines on the list. I am going again next week. Photo of the lievre and and of a foie gras dish (not the terrine I noted above) I had last visit are attached.
