Last Saturday night Angela and I went to Mon Ami Gabi and enjoyed a nice dinner. I wasn’t really expecting much after learning it was a chain (and after our experience with another notable premium chain restaurant earlier this month in Ruth’s Chris) but dinner was very tasty. Special shout out to Theresa for the gift card that prompted us to visit the restaurant.
We each decided to enjoy a full three courses. Before that, however, the waitress brought out a beet slaw and some French bread. Both were quite enjoyable.
Per my usual boring self, I started off with a Caesar salad. Angela opted for the French onion soup because:
- She’s a sucker for French onion soup
- Mon Ami Gabi is a French restaurant
My Caesar had dressing that was a tad bit watery for my taste. Angela said her soup was delicious, though.
I decided to order the special, bacon wrapped filet medallions, for my entree and Angela decided on scallops. Both dishes were delicious. My steak was cooked properly to order and Angela’s scallops were done appropriately.
My steak came with a few potato wedges which were tasty, but not exceptional.
Angela’s scallops came with pureed cauliflower which must have tasted good because I didn’t get to have any.
To seal off the meal, we both ordered Americanos and shared profiteroles with ice cream. It was a nice way to cap the evening.
I can’t say I would go back (there are just too many good restaurants in town) but it was a nice place to enjoy an evening and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to someone staying at Paris who didn’t want to walk the strip for something else.
