Bar Tartine **'

Langos - delicious fried bread with yogurt and fennel fronds. I'd come back just for this.

Romanesco pickle - yes.

Pig ear terrine - spicy, well balanced with radish and greens and acid.

Brussel Sprouts - nice good, very interesting, not just the usual fried brussels, fragrant and had a bit of sweetness.

Fried Oysters - good fry, juicy.

Nikolakis - cheese dumplings - disappointing, a bit gummy and the creamy sauce had a sweetness that I didn't like.

Fisherman's stew - spicy savory very nice if a bit overseasoned.

Chocolate Torte - chocolate with a merenge and a tart creamy topping. O.k.

Chicken Paprikas - not very strong paprika flavor - tender chicken - but flavors were somewhat muted. It was not at all like chicken I had in Budapest,a bit more refined. I wouldn't get this again.
