Advice: Mon -Fri mornings croissants and coffee; brunch on weekends. Lunch & Dinner daily.
Everyone has a love for Paris in one way or another, whether it be Paris in Vegas or Paris in France, now we have Paris in the Westend and I am in love with it.
From the moment you walk in the room it is as if you woke up in Paris, I visited during the week to start the day with my friend Alejandro and we shared a basket of fresh baked Croissants ($8.50) with 2 plain croissants and 1 chocolate croissant, I had an Espresso Macchiatto ($3.00).
On another day, I had dinner with friends sharing several of the dishes. I loved the outstanding French Onion Fondue ($9) with gruyere, onions, sherry and fresh baguette, it is a french onion soup without the broth; had the Albacore Tuna Tartar ($12) tapenade, pine nuts, oven dried tomato, espelette, croutons. Next was the delicious Cassoulet de Casteinaudary ($20) duck confit, bacon, toulouse sausage, cannellini beans; as well as the delicious Braised Lamb Gnocchi ($20) petit pois, mint and fromage blanc.
For dessert I shared the delicious and refreshing Citrus Parfait ($7) calamansi curd, blueberry preserve, burnt meringue followed by the Dark Chocolate Mousse ($7) with salted caramel and cocoa nib tuile. Looking forward to my next visit to try Brunch!
