Upon arrival, they poured us a complimentary glass of white wine.  We had the degustation dinner.  It started with none other than an assortment of the charcuterie, each one paired with a sweet jam:


This was delicious and I highly recommend stopping by to try and have some wine when in Paris.  The second course was the seafood and they served scallops.  They were well cooked.

For dessert, we had a choice from the menu.  I went with the rum baba.  It was ok, not the best I’ve had.


Overall, the service was good and the food was delicious.  I would go back, but focus only on the charcuterie.  The other food was good, but I want more of what they are known for!  8/10
