[QUOTE=llama;934411]I thought I’d write a bit of a review about Chefs de France, because it seems to be overlooked a lot. We love the place and eat there just about every trip. This trip we had Jeremy and Emily with us and the restaurant exceeded itself - we had a window table to watch the “world” go by, crisp white linens, a sweet waiter named Mathieu, and wonderful service. And the food was delicious. We started by sharing a cheese plate - the thing was HUGE! Four wonderful cheeses, all very fresh and creamy. A brie, a goat cheese and two others I can recall the names of - one was sort of a buttery cheddar that I couldn’t stop eating. I can’t imagine one person ordering it as an appetizer - it easily served four of us. The rolls were crisp and hot (Emily’s only complaint was that the butter was hard). I had a filet - pefectly cooked medium rare, with the wonderful au gratin potatoes and fresh green beans. Jeremy had beef short ribs with noodles - the meat was so tender - with a deep, red-wine au jus. Emily had scallops - she loved them and Neil had his duck. Of course Emily and I had creme brulee.:wub: The BEST creme brulee in the World (sorry LeCellier, but it’s true).
Ok, ok, I know some of you guys get a little testy about things French - but it’s too bad more people don’t give Chefs a try. It was our absolutely best meal of the trip. And it’s one restaurant that’s fairly easy to get into.[/QUOTE]
You know, Janice!
Every time we walked by, it looked so familiar and inviting to me. The time was never quite right. We had either just come from breakfast or we had a dinner ADR shortly.
This place is definitely on my list to make an ADR for next time. We should have skipped Germany and gone there instead :closedeye
Why don’t you post that review on allearsnet?
