We return to the Abbeville Kitchen and of course opt for the table right next to the open kitchen, which I think the staff perhaps found a little disconcerting. We on the other hand, want a good look at what's going on around us. The room is all wooden floor, wooden tables - it's functional, comfortable.
I don't try John's heart salad, but it looks delicious - well, I steal a bit of bacon from it - and it's good. He shows me the duck hearts, they are beautifully cooked, and pink in the middle.
My own obligatory green salad is very well dressed and seasoned, a hint of mustard to tickle the tastebuds, but not enough to overwhelm it. It also has a really good variety of leaves, a good balance of bitter and delicate.
