I had a very high expectation on this dish — Le Bœuf and thus, to my dismay, it fell short. Actually, there was only one bummer in this dish: the 'main cast' US Prime Striploin, which turned out to be really gamey and rather inconsistent in texture. Out of the three cuts, only one was nicely done to medium rare despite the perfectly looking marbling on the surface of all the three cuts. This, perhaps, had to do with the thick cut of the beef, making it harder to control the doneness during cooking. That aside, I fell in love with the potato and leek mille feuille topped with blended leeks. The thin layers of potato and leeks were skillfully executed, with a good contrast of starchy and sweet flavour. The onion fondant, besides being aesthtetically pleasing, gave a distinct nuance to the whole dish. It definitely had the potential to be the best dish of the set lunch meal.
