lunch at Biff's

Having lunch at Biff's this week. Are there any dishes you've enjoyed?

How is Biff's Cream of Mushroom with Tarragon soup? Is the kitchen heavy handed with the tarragon?

I'm sort of surprised no Croque Monsieur or Croque Madame is offered on the lunch menu. The sandwiches appear to be limited to the Lamb Merguez burger, the steak sandwich or the Chicken Club with Harissa Mayo.

I'm leaning towards the branzino or the char right now. Has anyone ordered the branzino or char lately?

Has anyone tried the medjool date cake? How was it?

  1. Ordered the Merguez lamb burger and frites. No real detectable "Merguez" flavour, but not bad for a lamb burger. The frites were ok, pretty much the same as what you'd receive at Bistro 990 , slightly more limp than the frites at Beerbistro.

    Would order something else if I were to return.

    1. I went yesterday for lunch. We ordered:

      Cream of mushroom Soup - Good but not great. I felt it needed more mushrooms to chew on, unless my wife ate them all before handing it to me.

      Steak Frites - Surprisingly good. Good portion. Skirt was cooked perfect, and frites were seasoned and cooked well. This dish outperformed the one served to us at Bouchon (we might have gone on a bad day).

      Duck Confit - Very good. Nice crispy skin. Biff's moutarde was great with every bite that I took. I still prefer the Duck Confit at Batifole.

      Profiter├┤les - Disappointing. This was the only bad thing we ordered. We were expecting the pastry to be soft and flaky, but it was the opposite. The only bright spot was the caramel.

      Everyone was ordering the Lamb Burger. I got to try that next.
