Juliette, our lovely waitress sensed my unease when the fish arrived and said, “Why don’t you give it a try and if you have trouble I can help.” What a sweet heart!
Well I did what I always do and she gracefully rescued my dinner. Juliette carefully fileted the fish perfectly, all the while demonstrating the technique. Don’t ask, I was mesmerized by her British accent and elegant hands.
The fish of the day, Dorade, was extremely fresh but because it was grilled whole it had that sweet flavor of the sea and was lightly seasoned with herbs and lemon. It was served with my favorite summer salad – fresh fennel and grapefruits.
The dessert special was Far Breton, a first for me, which is a traditional cake from Brittany, France. It was a dense custard cake, which reminded me of Italian Cheesecake.
