Compare Chefs de France, and Tutto Italia

I looked at both the menu's and found out that the dishes for dinner are very very similar. Is the taste similar? Is it worth trying both or just one. Can you please compare and contrast between the two? I want both for dinner.

I was at both two weeks ago.

Some of the dinner choices at Chefs: 1/2 roast chicken with potatoes, beef short ribs (not on the bone, but tender and lean piece of meat) in a cabernet sauce with noodles (yummy btw), steak with peppcorn sauce & potatoes, duck with potatoes etc.

Tutto: Lasagna (phenominal, best i ever had), Fetuccini in a parmesan cream sauce with pancetta (so good), braised lamb shank, risotto.

Two totally different menus & taste. I'd pick whichever appeals to you most. Theyre both great!!! We really enjoyed our meal at both.

This is Tutto:
Portions are huge at both!! I was completely STUFFED! I didnt finish my meal at chefs...too full cause i also had an appetizer there, in addition to the bread. Lol. But i didnt have an appetizer at Tutto thou. Their lasagna is pheonimal btw.

Bread is served at both.


I dont have a picture of Chefs/France, but its a standard french baguette, served WARM. I loooove warm bread, so i liked the chefs one better. It was nice that Tutto served bread sticks with theirs, as well as olive oil for dipping and olives, but im not a fan of olives or olive oil with my bread, i prefer butter. Thats why i liked Chefs better.

Chefs de France:

half eaten cheese board (sorry!). Missing from this picture are grapes, slices of raisin type bread, and a slice of what i think is swiss cheese. The best app ive ever had. so good.



Salad with warm goat cheese. incredible.



Beef short ribs: amazing! Beef was lean and tener. Sauce was perfect. Perfect amount too.



1/2 chicken with potatoes: chicken was very good. Potatoes were delish too! Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.



creme brulee: fantastic!



Profiteroles: Mmmm.




TUTTO:

Best lasagna ever:



A close look at the best lasagna i've ever had:



Tiramisu....so incredibly tasty:





My son had this. VERY good:

How are they similar? One is Italian and the other French.

I know but if you actually look at the menu's you will find some similarities. here is an example:

lasagna al forno, and lasagna a legumes

gratin de macaroni, and fettucini via roma

Gratin de macaroni is basically mac n' cheese. But obviously they use much fancier cheeses than the standard american cheese. Fetuccini via roma at Tutto is nothing like the one at Chefs. Chefs uses cream & gruyere cheese. Tutto uses parmesan cream. And both have different noodles. At Chefs they use macaroni, at Tutto its fetuccini noodles.

This is lasagna et legumes at chefs:


For the pic of Tutto lasagna, look at my pic above. Not simliar.
