    Get the foie gras terrine. We even got one to go, and I don't think they normally do that. So good!

    The truffle risotto is worth every penny. Perfectly al dente rice, suspended in luscious cream topped with shaved truffles. I also got the mussels and they were a bit too mustardy for my taste

    Truffle fries is tasty but no so fantastic. Steak is not bad, onion soup is so so. Overall a French bistro restaurant which is relatively rare in this region but quality leaves a bit to be desired.

    Don't sleep on the fries. Thin but not shoestring, exquisite texture, and they manage to keep a potato flavor you usually only see in steak fries.

    Great meal! Definitely start with the onion soup-best I've ever had! The chicken (below) also good but flavor profile similar to soup so if I had to do over, would choose a different main course.

    Bone marrow app. Compared to even the bev hills location, this dish sings perfection. Most marrow apps are too salty but this one is remarkably well balanced with hints of citrus, garlic and capers.

    There's a better trout in Campos do Jordão. There's a better gnocchi at São Paulo's Bottagalo. For a better dessert, skip the Marquise au Chocolat: try the mousse at l'Entrecôte d'Olivier. Trust me.
