I went to La Menagere on two separate occasions, firstly for an aperitif and snack, secondly for lunch.
On aperitif night, I tried the "Fried Egg", basically a sous vide egg, coated and deep fried with a pea purée. Fun. Good starter.
They also gave me a plate of Ruffles potato chips and fresh veggies, fennel, carrot and celery as a snack. It's just funny to see a plate of Ruffles offered. Sure, I ate them, they're salty and good and pair well with a Negroni.
Bankers Gin in my negroni along w a shaker for bitters...way more perfume than normal, I like it. Using a a higher end Martini brand sweet vermouth and they are infusing chili in the Campari as well. The Italians don't care for it... But some one does. Also doing a chili hot vodka infused martini with the glass washed w Hot chili Campari/white and red...for an inferno look to it
Lunch Day 2:
Awesome lunch of gnocchi that were toasted in seasoned cous cous lightly adorned in sheep cheese and then placed on top of a sauce of sheep's cheese and garnished with black pepper, sliced apples and zested lemon. Outstanding. Sorry, no picture, it would have been rude, I was with a guest.
Dessert of olive oil chocolate mousse, but creamier, topped with pineapple gelato (I'd do coconut in a second) and just dripped with olive oil. then crumbs of what could have been Oreo cookie were incorporated into the dessert. Almost trifle-esque. Simple to make, but decadent,
