I was pleasantly surprised by the Salad de Paris. Kitschy name aside, the chopped (yes!) garden salad had dried cranberry, tomato, avocado, black olive and roasted pine nuts. It might look simple and maybe "too clean," but it was a refreshing counterpart to the rich and heavy dishes we had.
A French classic is escargots. I love escargots - my initiation to French cuisine when I was a kid and I never lost my palate for it. This were comforting and briny, with a texture you either love or hate (I love).
Perhaps the only thing I wouldn't order again is the mushroom soup. The mushroom soup was extremely creamy and a little too Campbell soup-like. A little goes a long way.
