So we're doing another dinner for Hello Kitty's birthday, and when it came time to pick a venue, I was pretty surprised to see her choose Hugo's. Not only have none of us been to this place, none of us have been to the original incarnation of the restaurant, either... So it was new to all of us, and I was pretty eager to check it out.
I've been eating nonstop lately, so I wasn't in the mood to take on one of the tasting menus on offer. I struggled to come up with the list of à la carte dishes I wanted to order, as there were simply too many of those classic, middle-of-the-road dishes that we no longer see at many fine dining restaurants today. These include steak au poivre, Lobster Thermidor, Crêpes Suzette... etc. The restaurant is also famous for their many dishes prepared table-side - again harking back to the old days - so I was determined to order something in that category.
