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.
