“I ordered the Lapin à la Moutarde, and it was TO DIE FOR! One of the best dishes I’d ever eaten. I took my time at the restaurant, and while I nursed an after-meal cappuccino, the proprietor came in with the “new Alsace Riesling” for the staff to try. With my nose in my book, my server came by with a glass of that very Riesling and gave it to me on the house. Sharing wine out of the goodness of their hearts? This place was my heaven, and I vowed to come back again and again. That rabbit is as good today as it was that afternoon.” – Anna Chlumsky (Actress)
