Lunch at Alain Ducasse's Louis XV - Mirror, Mirror

The mirrored door beside our table reflects a corner of this beautiful restaurant.

In the smaller photo, my friend Lynda's first course:

Fumet de homard breton à peine crémé, fins raviolis de champignons des bois et châtaignes.

Stock of Breton lobster stock with cream, raviolis of wild mushrooms and chestnuts.

Our wine: Domaine du Loou 'Esprit de Blancs' 2010 - a delicious light and fresh Provence white wine from the Var.

The mirror enhances the view of the dining room. I, for one, would not want to be seated at a table where the view in the mirror shows me eating.

The mirror reveals wonderfully warm room and the first course sounds heavenly. I'm kind of wishing I could reach through my computer screen and have a small taste.
I've read many Ducasse recipes and quickly learned that he produces some very complex flavors.
