THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED L'Assiette Steak Frites Restaurant Review

: The concept of L’Assiette is simple: steak and fries. Why? It’s the favorite dish of owner Jacques Fiorentino, who teamed up with his son Marc on this restaurant. The steaks are coulotte cuts of Prime Nebraska beef cooked sous-vide. Meanwhile, the fries, which are made from Kennebec potatoes, are the result of a tedious 24-hour, eight-step preparation. The Fiorentinos are so particular about their fries that they even imported a machine from France to cut to what they like to call the perfect size: 8 inches. You will start your meal with a choice of sorrel soup or a house salad with a tasty vinaigrette dressing and chestnuts. We recommend the signature steak frites ($25), two servings of the tender steak with fries and secret house-made sauce. We tried to get some information from Jacques but it’s really a secret. Add $14 for black truffle shavings sauce, or $30 for Rossini style with black truffle shavings and foie gras (terrine, not seared). Two other frites versions are also available, one featuring the fish of the day and the other a vegan variation with grilled mushrooms and peanut oil pommes frites. Compose your own cheese course from the French selections for $5 per ounce. There are three options for desserts ($9 each). There’s a patio out front followed by the dining area, which is flanked by a marble bar on the left side and a glass wine cave in the back. Despite the small space, it can get somewhat noisy.
