Review of La Table du 11

LOVED the experience here with a team of young, professional and dynamic staff. They made a special vegetarian set menu for my husband - they tried their best to explain each course to us (non-French speakers) in English. The food demonstrated the creativity of the chef and was beautifully presented and the taste was wonderful. We will need to return when the seasonal menu changes.
