We hadn’t made dinner reservations but we were able to get a patio table at Brasserie Four.
It was either that or wait until 2100 to eat inside.
(Sorry, their website seems to be under construction.) It’s traditional French cuisine. There has been a heat wave – last week it would have been impossible to eat outside. Even today we had to put our bottle of Abeja Chardonnay into an ice bucket just to keep it cool. We dithered over what to eat; the vichyssoise sounded refreshing, but in the end we ordered salads.
They tasted as good as they looked. The entrees weren’t quite as stellar. Caroline’s mussels were excellent but her pommes frites should have been pale little shoestring fries and they were more like English chips. My trout was wonderful, but came with nothing but a pool of brown butter – no veg or anything. That left me looking for some carbs to round out the meal, but none of the desserts quite caught our fancy, so we just headed back to the hotel and helped ourselves to the excellent lobby cookies.
