As for the customer, or rather than speak on behalf of all customers I should say, as for me having already pre paid for food means by the time the day of the dinner comes round it feels like a cheap meal with only drinks to stump up for as the cost of the food is already a sunk cost. This means I'm more likely to pay for an additional cheese course and indulge in an aperitif! Another wise move Philippa Sibley!
The prepaid ticket also changes my expectations from a dinner out at a nice restaurant to a more theatrical affair. So the patriotic red, white and blue and that adorns the entrance way is a fitting start to for diner a deux.
We share an additional course of truffle infused Brie that is good but could be elevated to dreamy with something sweet like some honey.
Dessert is a dense cake topped with gold plated cream that is reminiscent of Marie Antoinette's powdered wig. "Let them eat cake" in its truest form!
Prix Fixe was a fun dining destination. The menu we experienced was witty and clever and oh so French!
