Nice new addition to Palmas scene. We went there last Sunday. Oddly, it was pretty much an elderly crowd, with some families. Good food, good service. Nothing at all wrong with the place. We were glad we tried it.
With that said, we were not awestruck. It is like Bistro Moustaches which opened on Reforma, not far from L'Avenue - good, nice to know it is there.
However, when we want French, we will stick with Au Pied de Cochon - now at two locations (Santa Fe and Polanco) in the Presidente Intercontinental Hotels and as a second option for French, go to Bistro Lipp. Those places are simply more wow and better.
If we want a great dining experience and something extra special, it will be Bakea, also nearby.
The one negative of L'Avenue is when we parked, we did not get our ticket from the valet parker, who gave it to the security person, who gave it to the hostest. We were 1 of 3 tables so I have no clue what it was not given to us. When we left it was a bit of a show with us checking all pockets and every corner of the wallet and then one of the valet boys remembered that the Volvo ticket was given to the security guard, who said he gave it to the hostess and she proudly gave it to the guard again so he could give to us and we could go home. Gee- thanks.
