Lasserre – excellent

With the First of May coming to an end, we got ready for dinner (with much anticipation) at the lovely Lasserre restaurant (previously a 3 michelin star – now dropped to 2 stars – dont ask me why). With menu and everything in french, the Maitre’ d had to explain everything in English.

The Lasserre (on rue F.D Roosevelt) is a 2 storey small building. You enter, take off you coat and are herded upstair to the dining area in a lift sized about 3ft by 4 ft and a 7 ft ceiling.

The ambience and environment in the dining floor took our breath away. It was opened aired when we got there, and there was a pianist playing some classical tunes on the piano (in a corner). The place was packed with diners – about 100 pax.

Our cosy table for 2 at Lasserre.

The ceiling dissapeared into the evening sky. Later we found out (with a thrill) that the ceiling slid open and close in intervals.

Ordering is no easy feat here. The menu was a 2 page spread and everything in French.

A degustation menu is available, but we kinda liked to order ala-carte. So these were the recommended selections – and we both wanted the Tiger Prawn Bisque!

The ambitious duo that we are, we wanted to pop into a bar or 2 after dinner. Full from the food, still jet lagged, we rushed back, showered and collapsed into bed.
