How's the food?
Mixture of European know-how with a nice touch of American cuisine !!! Very good menu, excellent culinary level. Leaning against the benches, we taste some wonders such as smoked salmon, escorted by forest fruits and vegetables, foie gras in two ways, in the form of a terrine and poached roulade, the crispy duck breast, boosted by a touch of fennel and honey, an unmissable gourmet stopover in New York. In addition, they have just had a Michelin star.
