I really wanted to go to Michael Mina‘s front line restaurant but given the presence of my three year-old son his more casual bistro seemed a wiser choice.
“Ahi Tuna Cru. Fallot mustard, french pickle relish, breakfast radishes, watercress.”
The sauce is added after. This is really a form of deconstructed bouillabaisse, not being a proper soup. Personally, I prefer le classique. This was fine but it tasted rather of “grill” and I prefer tomato and garlic!
Overall, this was a solid meal, but nothing blew me away. Execution was fine, and call me jaded (a word coming from the Norse for a broken-down old nag), but I was a little bored.
