La Table d'Eugene: "Our Favorite Restaurant in the Area."

By Johntalbott

Apr-may 2012 001La Table d'Eugene (Sue) is a place that, along with Sens Unique, Lui....l'Insolite and the Cafe qui Parle has renewed my faith in my quartier.  Yesterday we were eating with folks who live nearby and they said it was their "favorite restaurant in the area" and I agree.

While there's a 19 E lunch formula and a 2-course "menu" for 30 E, we went for the 38 E 3-courser which,  of course, came with plenty of supplements (20 E in all).  BTW the carte cover itself is really cool & clever - take a look.

One of us had the bacon [sic, according to the waitlady who lived several years in Park Slope] with deep friend artichoke and runny asparagus while the boys had bried langoustines with mango bits and greens - a fine start.

M. had the 7-hour lamb and lamb chop with sweet potatoes and we had the canette Burgaud (a part of Challans) two ways, one confited, the other not with fried green bread crumbs that were incredible.

M., on his way to the airport after over a month here, had his last great cheese platter, Mme. had the coffee mousse and ice cream and I had a chocolate bomb with hot and cold sauces - none of us complained.


With two bottles of wine to match the weather outside (mauvais), no bottled water and three coffees our bill was 209 E - however I must note that without the supplements and with a less pricy send-off present for my friends, a couple can walk out only 100 E lighter.
