Mornay fries ($10) are kind of an insane dish. First they squirt aioli all over them and then they slather them with mornay sauce. Good but the portion was enough for eight or ten people and to me it would make more sense to serve the sauce as a dip on the side, so the fries stay crisp.
Rosé and red house wine ($22 for 500 ml) were both very good and went well with the food.
I agree about the big mec and the bread and butter. The Mec tasted mostly of Worcestershire – I expected better flavor out of “fois gras infused bordelaise”, and the pickle bits were not a plus either. Meat was good though. The bread and butter are up there with the best I’ve ever had.
That said (as I posted on a trip report a while back), for me, the place was overall a disappointment. Although the french onion soup was a thing of beauty, it was virtually flavorless. I expected a deep, beefy, caramelized onion flavor, and there was none. I wish I had tried the omelette, as it seems to get almost universal raves.
Harry Styles and I both loved our omelettes at Petit Trois this weekend. He was, however, concerned when I ordered the mornay frites for one, which I thought was completely unfair as I didn’t judge him when he ordered three baguettes to-go.
