Le Pichet never dissapoints
I took my 12 year old son on a special mother-son date to Le Pichet last Tuesday night. He has been wanting to go with me for quite a while now as he is an up and coming foodie who loves to try new things. As soon as we walked in, we both got very excited by the overall feel of the place. It is a small, darkish room that feels homey and inviting. We were seated within 10 minutes and were greeted by our wonderful waiter. We started off with the Butter Lettuce Salad with mustard vinegrette and hazelnuts. It was delicious and perfectly dressed. Then on to the Smooth Chicken Liver Pate. It was so creamy and wonderful smeared on our bagette with two types of wonderful mustards and cornichons. Delicious! My son ordered the Hanger Steak and Frits. He said it was the best steak he had ever had and he even devoured the wild mushrooms that accompanied it... he usually doesn't care for mushrooms. I ordered the Chicken and Pork Sausage baked with potatoes and apples. It was absolutely divine. We enjoyed sharing each others dinners. To top off the amazing meal, we ordered the Pot Au Chocolate. The chocolate was amazingly rich and smooth and the fresh cream that came along with it was sweetend and whipped to perfection. The food, service and atmosphere was top notch and made for a really special evening with my special guy. We can't wait to go back!

I was there for lunch a couple of weeks ago and had the butter lettuce salad and the tartine with country pate and the chocolate chaud for dessert. The dessert was taking a while to make (I suspect the perfectly whipped cream was the culprit) and I needed to get back to the office so they gave it to me in a to-go cup. Two of them so I could keep the cream separate from the chocolate. It was awesome. I've never understood the comments about surly attitude coming from the staff, as that (obviously) has not been my experience.
