Laundry On Sundaes

Every beginning is only a sequel, after all, and the book of events is always open halfway through.

I bought a Travelzoo voucher for Chouchou Bistro a while ago and finally made a reservation for dinner a couple of months ago (so behind on restaurant review blogs!). It wasn’t too far from our apartment so we walked there. It was warm and inviting inside:

For appetizer, Yufei got the Assiette de Fromages, which came on the cutest palette plate. It was so adorable I wanted to steal it.

I got the salade de crabe, which had avocados, one of my favorite combos with crab. There was lot of chunky pieces of crab in it and it definitely satiated my craving for crab for a while.

For his entree, Yufei got the filet mignon with truffle mashed potato and zucchini in green pepper corn sauce.

And I had the Cuisse De Canard Confit Wellinglton: duck leg confit with mushrooms duxelle, diced potatoes, cherry tomatoes in garlic, shallots, and parsley, with maple vinaigrette. It was interesting in that the duck was wrapped in this puff pastry (almost like a duck confit en croute?). It was delicious and the serving size was huge (but I finished it all!).

And we shared a dessert of crème brûlée:

The food and service were both pretty good, but without a coupon I’m not sure I would come back since I’ve had better French cuisine in the city.
