Le Bec Fin

Coming in for a busy morning then meeting my wife for a late lunch at Le Bec Fin (her choice). I haven't been in ages so I checked out the website. It looks like the dessert course has changed quite a bit. Any other things I should know/eat?
Oh well ...
The short of it is - great service with decent food.
The best thing I ate was the sunchoke soup despite my going double foie. Neither of the two foie dishes were more than alright and the "torchon w truffles" certainly wasn't worth the $25 supplement.
Management is wonderful, servers are first rate, room is still almost too decadently furnished, and the menu and wine list on ipads is amusing.
But, food-wise I ended up wishing I had gone to Dinic's and had a roast pork italian.
Rumor has it Jennifer Carroll was seen in the kitchen a few weeks ago (although it doesn't seem her style).
I hate iPad wine lists! Another solution for a problem that doesn't actually exist.
Need to get back and see what's up. Personally I love the classic decor. We need a few restaurants where people feel the need to dress up, whether for special occasions or just a Saturday lunch.
