I am sooooo excited. I'd give you a link, but they don't have a website. All the reviews are amazing though and the word of mouth reviews are fantastic. My daughter is particularly looking forward to trying the escargot. I don't have a clue what I'm going to try...probably everything!

Kylie must be truly engrossed in The Hobbit since this is the 3rd day someone else started the dinner thread! I'm thinking I'll so something with the leftover ham. Not sure what yet. I'm going to peruse the leftover ham thread here to get inspired.

BTW - enjoy your BD dinner Alix!

The plan is to make beef barley soup with mushrooms. Some French bread should go nicely with it.

I'll pick for you. Pate, garlic soup, mussels, steak or salmon tartare, fois gras, duck a l'orange, and if you have any money left after that, how about some crepes and cheese for desert.

alix, i hope kate (and edith, too ) gets to have escargot served in one of those special plates that have recessed pockets for the snails, butter, and persillade that they can bake the puff pastry on top of each one. yummo.

if you see it on the menu, order the belon oysters, and the cancale tower, or a charcuterie tower with fresh baugettes, butter, and raw veg like radishes, carrots, beets, and celery.

for an entree, i'd love something slow roasted in red wine, provencal style.

and for dessert, who can argue with a decadent chocolate souffle?

Alix, I am envious! Enjoy!

Tomorrow I am doing homemade burgers with salad and maybe some oven fries for TB with my new pan. You don't have to turn them and they come out awesome!
