I took a group of eight, clients and their spouses. Everyone was wowed, and the bill came in at less than $100 per head, including dessert, cocktails, and wine.

The mussels sancerre are amazing - save room to soak up the sauce with creme fraiche and rosemary. My mouth waters when I think about it. I had had the mussels here several years ago, and I'm delighted they are still as good.

What I did not expect was the lemon sole meunière - it was a pan-fried, lightly fish-flavored cloud - really more like a dessert than an entree.

I love this place and would have eaten here every night during my trip if I could.
