A second lunch at the Bar Bolud was just as pleasant and successful as before. We were four. Noon saw us almost alone: by 12.30 the place was full. Fairly noisy, but good ambience overall and no background 'music', thank heaven.
We had a rich, genuine onion soup, followed by coq au vin three times and one volaille roti. I thought my coq au vin was a fraction oversalted, but I'm a low salt or no salt person, Most other people would be quite happy. Portions were large enough not to need anything more than coffee afterwards. The wines were Puligny by the glass and a carafe of acceptable red burgundy. A pleasant, well-served meal.
Overall, about £60 a head including the tip. One is paying for the location and the style. Location is fine. Style is a matter of taste. Apart from the staff, only one other bloke in the room was wearing a tie with their distinctly pricey suits. This is 'smart casual'. The term is 50% correct, but then I'm a million years old next Wednesday and may be a trifle behind the curve.
