Now this was a particularly wonderful French dining experience and we sat outside next to the fountain. Unsurprisingly, (due to namesake) there were a few gimmicks such as art pallets for placemats etc, but these were done in a tasteful way, and thankfully, were easily superceded by the food itself. Pastis was served properly with separate glass of ice and water, and rather bizarre mini tomatoes on sticks coated in poppy seeds were served (Because these were things of beauty, we wondered whether we were supposed to eat them!). I had fillet of beef, which was served on a stick interleaved with foie gras. This was pure joy - you expect fillet to be tender but it is the flavour which sorts the quality and this was exceptional, easily able to compete (more correctly complement) with the robustness of the foie gras/truffle. One minor criticism was that it was cooked slightly more than the requested saignant.
Unlike many other establishments, it is clear that this competes to satisfy the very discerning sophisticated French diner, rather than compete on profit via turnover.
