Eat your heart out

Out with Bryan today doing boys things and, despite this article about French restaurants, we had lunch again at Brasserie Le Farigoule in Sommieres. This restaurant is trying very hard to improve the quality of the traditional lunchtime menu and I really hope they succeed.

Take for example the lunch that's offered at our local relais. The food is cheap, tasty and enjoyable but the menu hasn't really changed in the six years that we've been here. We would go more often if we didn't have a very good idea of what was likely to be on the menu. That doesn't say we don't go, we might just go more often. Despite the fact that it's much further away I prefer to eat at Le Farigoule.

The above article hints at French arrogance (no surprise there then) with customers being castigated because they decide what they want to eat in defiance of the restauranteur. Amazing!
