It was wonderful to visit Le Pichet again. It had been a very long time.
Loved the great baguette with really delicious room temp butter (the refrigerated butter some places served really put a damper in the bread eating experience! By the time I was able to smear butter on my bread, I would already destroy the bread itself!).
We had brandade for appetizer. It had great flavors (although it was on the runny side), and the bread was grilled nice and crisp.
I got the special octopus and it was excellent! The octopus was very tender and in a lovely saffron broth. It was light and delicious.
