We like the Brasserie, and it's been well over a year since I've reviewed it, so here goes.
We turned up there on July 14th, as usual with no reservations. They found us a nice table, with a view of the other diners. The place was full of local Francophiles, celebrating Bastille Day. One chap even had a bleu-blanc-rouge rosette in his button hole. Compared to other Fairfield restaurants, this isn't a noisy place, but there was a nice, friendly bustle.
We had the July 14th Prix Fixe menu, which turned out to be excellent value.
I started with Escargots, then a savoury crepe dish made with Navarin of Lamb. Curious idea, but it worked.
My wife started with Quiche Lorraine, then Grouper in Champagne Sauce.
We both finished with Apple and Pear Clafoutis.
Every dish was perfect, and brought to the table with perfect timing.
Wine? Just the house wines, by the glass. Perfectly appropriate.
To sum up - every bit as good as the last time I reviewed them.
For those of you who haven't tried this genuine French bistro in the heart of Fairfield, what's the matter with you?
