Too orange for Halloween

Posted By on Thu, Dec 27, 2007 at 6:09 PM


I lunched last week at Soleil in Buckhead for the first time in a couple of years. The restaurant's quality took a dive after owner/chef Jacques Hourtal sold it. I received an e-mail last week that announced revision of the lunch and dinner menus.

So my friend Brad and I checked out lunch last Friday. Our first shock was the garish, orange-trimmed plastic that wrapped the patio. Our second shock was the food. The salade niçoise featured foul-tasting green beans -- we're talking inedible, folks -- and a bad brand of canned tuna.

My own dish, ravioli stuffed with lamb, was much better-tasting, but its presentation was ... well, let's just say it was the color of the exterior plastic trim topped with supergreen broccoli.
