... but the little woman leapt in with "no, actually great". I think she's right. Certainly, it was a terrific lunch in a faux French bistro but without faux food. The room and attached bar work very well in their residential setting, and the tables were set up well. Oh, yes: food. Some excellent carpaccio of very tender octopus, very light fettucine with prawns and lemon, both to share, a brilliant combination of layers of veal and fresh porcini, and a nice piece of fish for the LW - I forget which sort, since we were post chalice di champagne and 3/4 into a Planeta Chardonnay by this time. Which brings me to the wine list, the only issue with the restaurant. While doing the bistro thing is a nice idea, they should jettison the short wine list. The bottles on the list were fine, but the food deserves something a little less predictable and a little broader in scope. A Chablis in this context, although a nod to the bistro idea, adds nothing to the list.
