It has come to my realisation that I've yet to do a review for French Living and I've been to pretty much most if not all of their regional discovery special menu evenings that are held on a quarterly basis on weds and thursday evenings (from recollection) for the past 18 months. Initially we were invited here by friends who were curious as to whether me and my french OH would consider the cuisine to be authentic French and enjoy it as much as they clearly do! Well, we rate our friends good taste so we gave it a whirl. I have to say, for the first time I did check it out with my friends without my French OH (he was in France that week) and this gave me the confidence then to wholeheartedly recommend it to him, as he can be a pretty blunt critic in matters of food and other things!. Needless to say, he always suggests we return to try out other regions of France cuisine. We particularly enjoyed the Corsican cuisine, as at that time we had recently returned from a holiday there and it brought back happy memories of that beautiful island, its sun-infused foods and wines. You will need to pre-book these several course fixed regional menus where each course is accompanied by a matching glass of wine. You will not be disappointed if you are prepared to cave in, submit and be guided by their choices, even if that is not your normal style of approaching food and drink choices!. My last visit was in January and we are due our next evening amongst friends there in May but I suspect I might try out the daytime lunch menu for the first time before then. The staff are genuinely charming and without artifice, true pieds sur terre!. That is a refreshing change in an increasingly anglo-saxon americanised superficial global culture we live in that is full of branded high street eatery chains. Guard this gem close to your heart so it remains the case for decades to come!
A bientot et bon appetit!
