Menus

All establishments must post menus outside so they're available to look over before you enter. Most have two basic types of menu: à la carte and fixed price (prix fixe, le menu, or la formule). Although it limits your choices, the prix fixe is usually the best value. If you feel like indulging, the menu dégustation (tasting menu), consisting of numerous small courses, lets you sample the chef's offerings.
