Lucien is one of those gems you want to tell only people you really like about. The place is very small, with a small bar and amazing food.

French food without any fuss. The Foie Gras appetizer and the Fillet Mignon are my favorites.  

The Foie Gras is served with onion jam and kind of apples (they taste something between an apple and a pear…) and I can’t stop myself of cleaning the plate with the baguette after the Foie Gras is gone.  

The Fillet Mignon is served with light black pepper cream sauce and amazing French fries – the sauce is so good, I clean the plate (again) with the fries until there’s no more sauce.

Desserts are great too…  Try the Crème Brulee or the Tart Tatin… I’m getting hungry now….

Prices are reasonable for the quality of food you get.
