I wish servers weren’t so desperate to clear plates at the drop of a fork by a specific diner instead of waiting until all in the party have finished. Neil had to stop his plate from being taken because he hadn’t quite finished eating.
We had to ask for a dessert menu, but there’s a good selection. I overheard our server say that the host is more concerned about a server’s personality, rather than her or his ability to set a table. That’s fine, but the host still needed to instruct our server how to set for dessert. Neil chose the
chocolate pot de crème, which has been a Jean Robert staple for a while and still wins. I selected the pineapple and rum pudding, which I naively thought would be either a creamy pudding or a variation on a pineapple upside down cake.
It’s actually bread pudding. It’s good, though I don’t love bread pudding, but nowhere near as good as a version we shared at Bravo last year.

I make this sound like it was a downer of an experience, but it wasn’t because the food is good and isn’t obscenely priced. However, I expect more from Jean Robert and Le bar à Boeuf wasn’t so special that we’d think about returning anytime soon.
And the birthday celebration I had requested? It was never mentioned.
