A week ago, we went to Trente-Cinq for dinner w/ our friend Denise. This was the first time there for all of us. Here's what we ordered:

me: Steak au Poivre ($25) - "Filet mignon served with a green pepppercorn sauce and fries."
Patty: Waterzooi ($20) - "A traditional seafood dish from Belgium. Salmon, halibut, shrimp, scallops, mussels, and vegetables served in a saffron cream broth."
Denise: Bouchee a la Reine ($14) - "Puff pastry filled with a chicken and mushroom veloute. Served with roasted tournee potatoes."

Sorry - no pictures (it was too dark inside).

A plate of bread was served w/ a ramekin of something that resembled a relish. The bread was ok. The relish didn't have much flavor.

My dish was ok. The meat itself was tender but flavor-wise it didn't "wow" me. I thought the peppercorn sauce sauce kind of drowned and overpowered the steak. The fries were decent.

Patty's Waterzooi was fantastic. The cream broth was so light, but still packed w/ flavor. It was a very unique flavor.

I tried a bit of Denise's dish and thought it was ok. Nothing spectacular here...

We noticed that almost every table ordered the Moules au Vin Blanc (steamed mussels). If we go back, we'll definitely try them.

We hit T-C Saturday night. It was a mixed bag, but we did like the main course. Tara had the pork tenderloin and it was fantastic. I had the bouchee a la reine and thought it was very good, but not on the same level as the pork.

All the food there is excellent. I had the fillet and it was the best I've ever had. My wife had the chicken and we had to go back fo more. The Tropezienne desert is a must!
