NFT Radar: Café Presse

X-Posted from Not For Tourists.

I must be late to the Café Presse party because when we got there for dinner on a Thursday, we were told there was a 45-minute wait. I’m glad we endured, because we were seated in 20 and, I’m pleased to report, served fare that lived up to the hype. We washed down fresh bread and butter with outstanding French wine, whilst awaiting our hearty entrees. You can’t go wrong with the steak frites cooked to order, or the gargantuan côte de porc fume (smoked pork chop) with the veloute de champignons (pear and mushroom soup). If, like me, you’re crazy about beets, you’re in luck. The betterave, noix et bleu is a beet and blue cheese salad without any of those pesky greens to get in the way. If you’re not in a hurry, they’ll roast you a chicken. There’s also no shortage of egg and cheese dishes. Think this all sounds too fancy to be affordable? You may want to avoid it near the end of a pay period, but taking a date here won’t break the bank either. They’ll be trés impressed with your culinary palate and you’ll both be completely sated.
