I wasn't disappointed, neither by the decor nor by the food.
They started us of with a delicious cocktail made of Martini bianco and Champagne - who knew?! It was refreshing perfection.
My brother tried one of Eric's oyster - his first ever raw oyster which apparently he loved (I'm personally not a fan). Do you know the proper way to eat Oyster's? Check out my Christmas post from last year on the subject
I preferred the look of his duck and green bean salad.
And I had the escargot. Every time I try this classic of classics, I am reminded of my favorite episode of I Love Lucy.
Eric likes to treat himself to the things we don't generally eat at home - after all isn't that why we go out to eat - so he had the steak tartar. I love having a seafood platter which my brother thinks takes too much work to eat. My father had a lovely salmon filet and my brother the steak frites, with "frites maison" of course and a "sauce bearnaise".
Purely out of gourmandise I decided to add a dessert to my already plentiful meal - Profiteroles. Yum!
Needless to say I had to practically be rolled out the door. What a delightful moment spent with family in a classy establishment with fantastic staff (seriously my dad was ready to take the waiter home with us). Perhaps not the best meal I've had in Paris but still well worth the trip.
Like most brasseries of this style, be prepared to open your wallet wide - it's not cheap!
