Frenchette never even closed. That just never happened.

More price hikes.
From exactly one year ago:
Sides $9 -> $15
Tongue & Mackerel $16 -> $21
Lobster $48 -> $68 (or was it $66, same difference)
Turbot $88 -> $116
And so on.

I think the problem is that they were being no-income workers.

Their version of quenelles is something else.
But had to send back the usually excellent sweetbreads as they weren't cleaned properly. (got a second order of quenelles instead)

(I’d be happier myself if they still had quenelles.)
I'd be happier if Atomix had won.

It would have if there were a separate SP category.

[sigh] Companion at my last dinner here has decided to board the natural wines hype train. We had four? five? natural wines, the most I've ever drunk at one sitting. I could feel the incipient hangover even before the bill arrived. It was my first time in the dining room proper, and I was somewhat dismayed to find it's no quieter than the bar area. Perhaps worse [or the jubilant party at the corner table may have been to blame].
Perhaps not entirely coincidentally, Vox published a natural wines explainer this week!
Now natural wine has become a signifier of bourgeois taste in certain social circles and on certain menus across the United States. It has become a source of indie social capital, with wine labels that are as feverishly followed and obsessed over as album covers in the ’80s.
Vox really ought to have published this when The Four Horsemen was featured in Master of None's Tinder episode.

Anyway, at last I had a really excellent dish, boudin blanc with good crayfish and generous morels on a sauce which was like a reduced crayfish bisque. Crisp sugar snap peas, and a bargain at $28 with the generous morels.
Ordered the brouillade finally, and the eggs are not helped by tiny, chewy, bitter (canned?) snails. Then again, who’s paying $26 for scrambled eggs?
Mortadella and brioche nice, wines excellent. $150 all in, which no longer seems unreasonable.

so, am i wrong to think that frenchette can be done at the $125/head all-in limit?
my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary
current restaurant review: house of curry (sri lankan in rosemount, mn)
current whisky review: glen ord 28
current recipe: white bean curry with green peppers
facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!
