The new Fall menu started last Thursday at Café Presse with the traditional menu tasting for our staff.  We were all excited for the flavors of Fall after such a long hot summer and to see again some of our old favorites return to the menu (like oysters on the half shell and Soupe a l’oignon gratinee).

Now you can enjoy all the new dishes and old favorites yourself.  Here are some photos to whet your appetite.

Salade of red, Belgian and curly endives  and pears with creamy Bleu d'Auvergne dressing and garlic croutons.
