La Régalade Part II (1st)

My wife’s cousin Mildred arrived in Paris today with her husband Chris, so we went to La Régalade St Honoré for dinner. After having an excellent meal here the first time around, I felt La Régalade would be a good example of what French bistro food is today. The meal started with bread served with country terrine and pickles. For our first course my wife ordered the crab rolls with cucumber, radish and herb salad and I ordered the squid ink risotto with shrimp and garlic chips. Mildred and Chris had the same starters as us. The crab rolls were tasty with good quality crabmeat. The squid ink risotto was good with a nice kick from the garlic chips. For our mains my wife ordered the flank steak with fingerling potatoes, spring onions and anchovy butter and I ordered the scorpion fish with potatoes, leeks and seafood bisque. Mildred ordered the crisp skin pork belly with confit carrots and Chris ordered the roasted veal shoulder with sausage stuffed mushroom and potato purée. My wife’s steak was well presented with the anchovy butter to one side of the plate. My fish was perfectly cooked with a nice buttery seafood bisque. Mildred and Chris said their dishes were good. For dessert my wife ordered the rhubarb crumble with apricot sorbet, Chris and I both got the Grand Marnier soufflé and Mildred ordered the rice pudding with caramel sauce. Desserts were all good. To drink we shared a half bottles of Sancerre and Chateau Neuf de Pape. Once again a good meal at La Régalade.
