I had not returned for 10 years. Well I was pleased to return this week.
Service was good and the food tasty with generous portions for rock bottom price at lunch time- parking in the nearby lot is free (if space available).
The ``Potage`` with coriander was interesting for the three of us.. My very difficult uncle loves the ``Raie`` (a house specialty); he takes it every time. He is never disappointed. I took the ``Salade de chèvre chaud`` and was totally satisfied. However my aunt took the ``Magret de canard`` and found it overcooked and too thickly cut -but she is very difficult. I wish she would had given it to me because it looked delicious. The table d'hôte ``fruit salad`` was ok.
The Van Horne street view is not very exciting (concrete and asphalt) but there is an interior garden where you can eat under the flowered (May 17th) pergola. Twisted utensils were low scale (hospital cafeteria type or worse) and seemed greasy/not well cleaned. I had to clean a spoon myself on my towel. The table are covered by a nice white tablecloth and a large square of paper above it; that is twice better than nothing at all in many restaurants. nowadays. Other people seated that day seemed also very affluent, judged from their clothing and hairdos. I had to tilt my wooden chair upon arrival because it was covered with bread crumbs; the other guests chairs had the same problem. The garcon swept the crumbs on the floor with his bare hand, after seeing me tilting repeatedly my chair. Air conditioning was too strong and provoking me to sneeze, (?dusty) vents above our heads. We asked that it be turned down which was quickly done.
