Too much fuffing around with the deco for me. Nouvelle Cuisine has been dead for 25 years, thank God. Someone should tell the Chef at Topaz.

To me french food, (yes the presentation is great), is not only overpriced, but not filling at all

Not quite right, Nouvelle Cuisine was an aberration.

But think Blanquette, Hachis (a little like Shepherd's Pie), Onion Soup (with a thick cover of pastry and cheese), Cassoulet, Confit, Gigot d'Agneau, Fondue, Tartiflette, Choucroute garnie, Boeuf Bourgignon.

Fark, I am hungry now.

amuse bouche, escargot in wine reduction

A huge plate with a dollop of something in the middle. Why? Why not just buy smaller plates?

How much was the amuse bouche, escargot in wine reduction?
... give 'em a quick, short, sharp shock ...

Too much.

I call it fairy food. Some wanker who thinks he 's designing fashion in Milan applies it to food. FAIL.

Well you certainly can't on your so called budget. But then again your only a attention seeking pineapple.
