le relais de venise


Le Relais de Venise L’Entrecote has one dish on its menu:

green salad with walnuts dressed with mustard vinaigrette followed by steak frites, served with a secret recipe sauce

The only decision to make is the heat of the steak and whether to order dessert. The setting is french bistro, and the wait staff write the steak order on the paper tablecloth (“R” for rare). I’d seen this restaurant in London, and once my day finished at a reasonable time I was looking for somewhere to eat. Could have gotten fast food, but at $24.95 it was reasonable.

The salad was nothing special, I ate all 3 pieces of bread that came with. The steak was served sliced, and split into 2 servings. The frites were a little too oily for my liking, but went well with the sauce and the mustard. I ordered a glass of corbieres with the meal.

It was okay to be dining alone. I brought my ereader, and noticed other business diners. Still early so I had a dessert of mont blanc. Ah, memories.
