Lido, Paris

Lido is "the world's most famous cabaret" located in Champs Elysees, Paris. It is an amazing show that has been going on since 1946, with 70 different artists and 23 different sets, real ice rink, dancers, acrobatics, amazing costumes put together into an amazing show that lasts for almost two hours.
Our starter was shredded skate and vegetables in a light cream sauce, served with steamed girolles and I have to say that it was a very strange dish. It was like the chef had just opened a tin of fish in oil and emptied that into small glass bowl, not nice.
Main course was chicken fillet glazed in lemon and bay leaves with caramelized chicory tatin, again not the nicest plate of food. The chicken was quite dry and had no taste whatsoever and whatever was on the plate next to it just had a random biscuit on top of it. Eek.
Dessert was all right,' home-style paris-brest' said the menu and it appeared to be baked almond-topped choux pastry filled with praline-flavoured butter cream.
Food in the Lido was nothing spectacular, quite the opposite than what I expected, but I suppose the main focus would be on the show. And for the show I wish I had bigger and better words to describe it, all I can say is that it was just breathtaking.
