Pierre Victoire, Oxford

Thursday 20 March
Priscilla took us out to dinner at Pierre Victoire on Little Clarendon Street, where she says she's never had a bad meal. 
We decided it was a white wine night, so got a bottle of Macon Villages. 
The pre-theater menu is a deal at 10 pounds 50, so we got one menu featuring gravlax with horseradish cream, and duck leg confit with prune sauce on a root vedge and potato rosti.
Our other dishes were from the à la carte menu (courtesy of the department of redundancy department): an abundant bowl of moules marinières à la crème, and salmon en croute with spinach, plus a rocket salad.

Desserts were a dark chocolate fondant, and an individual Paris-Brest, like a little doughnut stuffed with cream.  
We went away happy, so Priscilla's estimate of Pierre Victoire is still on target.  Thanks, Priscilla!
