Great write up, Robert. I could almost smell, feel, and taste the food because of your descriptions. This post reminds me of a book by John Grisham (The Firm guy) called Playing For Pizza. Yeah, that was Italian food, and this post covers French cuisine, but the descriptions are equally enticing. I'd almost be willing to stomach a few of these mushroom laden recipies - almost.
Thank you for sharing!
The food does look good though.....
"A Signature Half Pound of burger patties with Andoullie Sausage, Bacon, melted Jack Cheese and spicy ranch dressing. Topped with shredded lettuce and fried onions. Served on a Keiser Roll with seasoned fries."
Pat O’Brien’s Hurricane:
4 oz. of Pat O’Brien’s® Hurricane Rum blended with 4 oz. of Pat O’Brien’s® Hurricane Mix. Voted Best Specialty Drink in New Orleans!
The Dead Texan: Two Texas Toast Grilled Cheese sandwiches (the buns) with a 1/3 lb burger, 1 egg, two slices of bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, and peppercorn mayo. Top it off with some fresh cut, beer battered onion rings, and a tall glass of locally brewed water (hey, someone has to be able to drive to Orlando!), and you have a combo that cannot be topped. =)
I dare you to eat all of this – 4 course meal and the head directly to Mission Space… If you can hold it all down you get a free year’s pass to Epcot…
At that price it should have been perfect and it wasn't. Most plates also looked boring. Having been eating often in Belgium and France this can't stand in the shadow of most decent restaunts I visited. It's excuse is probably that it's in a themepark and not much Americans ever traveled to Europe and have visited some exceptional good restaurants over there (not the themepark crap).
Anyway an awesome review of a place I will never ever want to visit.
I do agree in France they have these little huts on the street corners that have the best smash sandwiches. Beef and fries smashed into a sandwich press… Great when buzzed back in the day when I was in the Navy.
Anyway, loved your review and the food looks wonderful. Is the steak as good as it is at Le Cellier? We ate there last year and the filet was phenomenal.
