This neighborhood restaurant was the perfect place for a birthday dinner. The dining room is small, but half the fun is watching the food come out to your neighbors' tables as you make your own decisions about what to eat. My sister and I took advantage of the frequently changing menu to sample vegetables made into a fresh soup that tasted, quite simply, like spring we moved on to main plates of pork confit and blanquette de poisson, respectively. Both were excellent. The cheese plate had more than a dozen wonderful cheeses and was a good representation of flavors and textures. The cherry on top was the baba au rhum. It's long been one of my favorite desserts to pick up in a patisserie, but Astier's version was something special – after presenting a large piece of cake on a deep plate, the waitress poured a generous measure of rum syrup over it before placing a glass of freshly whipped cream on the side. Delicious.
