Being a Francophile, I made my reservation at Le Diplomate before they even announced their plans for Bastille day. It was decorated with french flags, balloons and face painting for the kids. I even envied a little girl with an Eiffel tower painted on her face!! The place was a madhouse. Their food was good but nothing to sing about. Service was OK.
The raisins walnut bread was good.
Warm Shrimp Salad lemon beurre blanc, avocado
I enjoyed my refreshing salad. It took two people to find out where the shrimps were from before ordering. I enjoyed the oven roasted tomatoes. The greens were dressed perfectly.
Steak and Eggs teres major, sauce mornay, sunny side eggs
My husband ordered this boring dish. The steak was a blade cut and the deep-fried potatoes were nothing special. Adding some seasoning, parmesan or herb would have made it more appealing.
It was smaller than we liked and even though the puff pastry was crisp, the vanilla pastry cream was eggy.
