French, food and kinda different

press lunch with a chatty company today at La Trouvaille, an unusual French restaurant behind Carnaby Street; a shady alley with sun inching towards the table and a quite unusual menu. My octopus was delicious but maybe I should have had the aubergine, honey and cheese tart? The fish was good too (mullet or black bream) but I could have had ox cheek, liver, Toulouse sausages or blue cheese brandade. rhubarb baba was unusual, celery and apple crème brulee was downright weird and the chocolate mousse was all chocolate and moussey.
