This time last year, I was at the French Open, and for the past several days, I have wished I was back in Paris. Fortunately a friend invited to me to dine at Petit Robert Bistro and from the moment I entered this divine and charming place, I was instantly swept back to my favorite Parisian bistro. I started with a mixed green salad with a tangy, but subtle, mustard vinaigrette. The fresh bread was a tip off that this establishment has deep roots in presenting a traditionally exquisite french dining experience. The small baguette was so crisp and fresh, I could have dined on bread alone. But being the glutton that I am, I could not resist ordering the calves liver with onions and bacon. I may only try this dish once a year, so it has been quite awhile since I have been able to savor a presentation as sublime as this. The spot on presentation indicates to me that all entrées would be beautifully prepared. (And while I love Brasserie Jo, let me say that their presentation of calves' liver is not even in the same league.) The steak frites that my friend ordered were outstanding. There are so many wonderful items on the menu that I can not wait to go back. Some very interesting seafood preparations will be the area I will focus on on my next visit, primarily the creamy lobster bisque and an item that featured scallops in their shell...Yum..
And, the service was outstanding!
This is a wonderful place for a first date, an anniversary and especially for couples who enjoy a great dining out experience.
