Meal Description

Imagine this.  You are in Paris.  It is springtime, about 7:43 at night.  You are hungry.  There is no decision to be made as where to eat.  You know the Left Bank is the best side to watch the changing colors in the clouds over Paris as the sun sets.  You walk 5 minutes along the Seine to one of your favorite restaurants, Le Voltaire.  You see Pierre and he you, and the waiter breaks a familiar and welcoming smile.  He knows two seats are available on the patio, so he pulls out the table allowing you to squeeze onto the bench seat shoulder to shoulder with the other diners, and then, he puts the table back blocking your exit.  You are destined to eat fine French food without any possibility of escape.  He knows your order, as it is the house specialty, Steak Frites.  He leaves to place the order and you marvel at the colors in the sky while eagerly anticipating its arrival.  Oh, how you long to be in Paris, on the bank of the Seine, enjoying an Onglet Frites while sipping your 2005 Pauillac, and experiencing old world service.

Well, we can’t fly you to Paris for dinner on Thursday, but we can get you just a little closer to Paris than you otherwise would, and can certainly deliver old world service.  Besides Steak Tartare, while in Paris, this is the Cook de Cuisine Chairman’s comfort food.  And, she certainly never misses an opportunity to visit Le Voltaire, and yes, to say “Bonsoir” to Pierre as well.

Traditionally, Steak Frites are made with Onglet, or Hanger Steak, which also is known as “The Butcher’s Cut” as it is the one they keep for themselves.  We have sourced a high quality, all natural beef for this dish, which will be served with a Red Wine Shallot Sauce (comes w/ alcohol evaporated).

Two White Asparagus Add-On Offerings:

Chefs greatly anticipate the arrival of these gargantuan ivory stalks from Europe, which have a diameter of 28 centimeters at a minimum – these are not those skinny ones that have appeared recently in Whole Foods.  French white asparagus have a creamy, succulent texture and are meant to be served at room temperature.  

White Asparagus Salad with Sauce Gribiche

The Sauce Gribiche, which is similar to deviled eggs, is a salad dressing using cooked egg yolks mixed with capers and cornichons.

Chilled White Asparagus Soup

This is a soup consisting almost entirely of White Asparagus.  We will peel the asparagus and create a broth with the skins that will be the base of the stock.  The stocks of the asparagus are pureed to give the soup body, while the spears tips are retained for garnish.
