I passed so many times in front of Brasserie Athenee, a French restaurant, that I was kind of looking forward to eat there. So we decided to go for brunch, on a Saturday. The place was crowded for sure and had its charm, with the banquettes and chandeliers.
They started off by bringing bread, a mandatory element of a French meal, but I admit that I was a bit disappointed not to see some baguette...
I started my meal with a fresh squeeze orange juice that was just ok, as it seemed to have been cut with just a bit of water.
For her entree, Jodi decided to go with the salade Nicoise, made with seared tuna (I mention this because the original salad is made with canned tuna). The salad did not look good, from the tomatoes to the tuna that was not appetizing at all.
On my side, I wanted to order the duck leg confit, but when they told me it was served with rice and steamed vegetables, I passed. So, I went for the mussels and fries. It was just ok, the mussels being big, but dry and the fries not crispy at all.
This was a disappointing brunch. For sure, I will not go back to Brasserie Athenee!
