Zagat Presents: An Evening on the Seine at Comme Ca
There is a sense of gentility about Comme Ca that envelops you from the moment you walk in the heavy steel doors. Although it only opened its door in 2007, it has the feel of an old standard. The atmosphere encourages civility without discouraging a good time. Everyone from the general manager to servers are cheerful and friendly, and we even had a lovely conversation with the people at the next table.
We were dining at Comme Ca by invitation last week to enjoy Zagat Presents "An Evening on the Seine". It was one of the first special events at David Myers’ French Brasserie since Executive Chef Dong Choi came on board, but it will not be the last. The restaurant is planning on offering special prix fixe menus on a regular basis.
Although the menu items were not unheard of on a typical French menu, they were leaning towards the more adventurous palate. Skate, squab and foie gras are not for everybody, and they are not always for every cook. Luckily for us Comme Ca can execute this kind of menu with one hand tied behind its back.
