It was unfortunate for the Cafe de Paris that we chose to have dinner there within two weeks of our return from a 10-day holiday in Paris. As a result, very little on the menu resembled any of the wonderful meals we had in Paris. As mains, I had the fish which was to come with a delicate butter sauce of shallots, mushrooms and capers; my husband chose chicken cordon bleu which bore little taste or appearance to what we've seen before. And unfortunately, both came with the same heavy, ubiquitous brown mushroom gravy, not the delicate touch so prized by French chefs. We do give compliments to the French wine, the house salad with the strawberries, as well as the delightful young server who was from a town outside of Paris. And a note to the restaurant and the city of Fort Lauderdale: sidewalk dining doesn't work unless Las Olas is pedestrian only. The sidewalks are narrow and the experience is marred by both the passing of cars with radios loud enough to be heard in Paris as well as dirty, fume discharging busses driving their routes (electric, green busses anyone?) As American-French cuisine, it may be passable, but as Parisian. . . . .Non.
