20 May

I was invited to this steakhouse which was pretty hard to find actually since it’s in the basement of a company building. What was funny is that if you say that’s your birthday, you can get a free dessert, so we saw not less than 3 birthday during the evening. Outside that, we chose the smallest meat piece (for diet they said), a 6oz steak which was already huge, like twice as big as what you usually get in a French restaurant.The room is pretty big and tried to be classy however the outfits of the waiters and cook ruin the all so it turns out to be a comical and quirky place.

The corn weren’t that good, too creamy, same for the spinach. Actually it was more cream with spinach than spinach with cream. The purée was good and handmade. The steak a little too hard and with too many nerves. Expensive and not that good compared to the meat from the Teppanyaki i tried last time. Fortunately we had a good wine, a Bordeaux Supérieur Lafite Monteil that we finished before the meat arrived.
