Comme Ca vs. Bouchon
Comme Ca (newly opended at The Cosmopolitan) throw down versus Bouchon (Venetian):
Ambiance: point to Bouchon -- which gets the tiled bistro effect down pat; Comme Ca has the glitziness that is The Cosmopl\olitan and the bright lights of the video screens on the strip become distracting after the inital wow factor wears off.
Service: point to Comme Ca. No stuffy waitstaff at Comme Ca, though there was a stuffy maitre de -- it does bother me when one seems to be stopping by other tables (in a not fulll restaurant) and ignoring ours. I would have been happy to fawn in his presence if he had made the effort.
Pomme Frites: point to Bouchon--Comme Ca's were tasty but not as McD's crispy.
Entrees: point to Comme Ca. The bouillabaise (forgive my spelling, HS French was a long time ago) was excellent. Guest had the CC burger which sung with the garlic-mayo "secret sauce." Admittedly, the sample here was not statistically significiant.
Deserts: major points to Comme Ca. The terreine (there goes the spelling again) au chocolat was a dark chocolate fantasy -- mucho intense. But the chocolate pot de creme was, for those still desiring infantile pablum pleasures, was one of the best renditions ever. Pure smooth chocolate mouth feel. Satisfying but not greasy. Totally addictive.
