If you like mega-portions of pate, head to Violette (2948 Clairmont Road, 404-633-3363). This plate would have literally fed four and I took half of it home.

It was the beginning of our meal last week at the popular bistro opened years ago by the late Guy Luc. The restaurant retains the strong Alsatian influence of Luc, who was one of the most eccentric restaurateurs in our city. Old-timers will remember his original restaurant nearby in an old bank building. There, he hosted prix fixe dinners that featured a waitress who sang at the top of her lungs throughout your meal, not even

stopping for a breath when she went into the kitchen to fetch a plate.

We visited last week for the first time in a couple of years and found the restaurant doing a brisk business. There was no singing waitress, but there was a duo playing piano and guitar and we had the usual good service. I'll have more to say about the food in next week's paper.
