The MINI PALAIS!
Mini service: At 23h00 : "Vous pouvez prendre une seule chose Monsieur, la cuisine ferme"
"But it says here you're open until 1h00 am"
"Vous pouvez prendre une chose monsieur"
After our dish, she came by on several occasions to sell us dessert (that looked every bit as inspiring and inventive of the rest of the menu....
Mini taste. Tartar: Presentation: hamburgered meat shaped like doggy doo in the middle of the plate with accompanying (not bad, but hardly difficult to make either...) purée de pomme de terre. Doggy doo's a hell of a lot cheaper for a probably similar tasting substance..
The terrace is magnificent, but after having heard for so long of Choukroun's verrines, attention to fresh produce etc , pretty disappointing. And the deco is n'importe quoi, but I guess it matches the rest.....

Maybe Paris would be a good place for an opening..., the best spot being in the recently vacated Planet Hollywood space on the Champs... No lack of Mid Easterners who'd definitely be into the concept, local hoodlums as well, and, hey, why not good old All American families?
