We go to Chez Bruno most years for our anniversary dinner, as it is an iconic local restaurant, with a warm, romantic atmosphere. Yes, it is ridiculously expensive, and the cooking isn't Michelin level, by a long way. But it's a lovely quirky place, which stays focused on traditional regional decadence. No change this year, in that regard. However, what was disappointing this year were a number of seemingly 'cost saving' measures - or just plain laziness! The 'signature' mis en bouche didn't appear this year. Just a piece of toast with shavings of truffle. The starter was a slice of canned fois gras, fresh (and very cold) from the fridge, along with a spoonful of jam from a jar. It was like the starter had just come from Intermarche's Christmas shelf. The 'signature' potato dish was as devine as ever, and the pdj of suckling pig shoulder was nice enough. too. However, the desert was again, just something from the freezer of the local supermarket.
Sorry, to say, if there is no improvement, we'll be heading to pastures new for our anniversaries from now on!
