A lunch at Le Bistrot du Sommelier

Le Bistrot du Sommelier

Another delicious meal from Le Bistrot du Sommelier. There were some mackerel rillettes, fragrant and freshly steamed artichokes from Brittany in season that were served with a tangy onion salsa, some very fresh tasting tenderloin tartare where the quality of the meat spoke for itself in the midst of the spices that was mixed in them and a very delicious hanger cut onglet with an intense beefiness that was amazing with the sweet shallot confit with soft garlic cloves. I had that onglet back in Au Petit Salut ages ago and this one seemed to be bigger and better. All those juices from the meat and confit got soaked up in the fries making them extra tasty.

Dessert was a recommendation from their wait staff, a frangipane tart with smooth pistachio cream, toasted pistachio and luscious raspberries which was pretty awesome.
