With a name like Champs-Elysees, you would expect this little cafe on the ground floor of the Mercure Hotel to be a French restaurant.  However the only things on the menu were curries (3 kinds) and sandwiches.

Not feeling the curry today, I opted for a sandwich, hoping for a delicious new sandwich spot close to work (note:  these do not exist in Yokosuka).  Unfortunately, the sandwich was a super soft ungrilled pannini with flavorless Japanese bacon, processed melty cheese and a couple of pieces of cooked eggplant (the ratatouille perhaps?).

The salad was ok, but spoiled by a tart mustard dressing.  There was more mustard dressing on the sandwich itself.  The tiny soup cup was totally uninteresting.

Oh yeah..there were potato chips too...also terrible.

The only reason I am not giving this a Nasty is because it's a nice looking spot that serves coffee and desserts that may be worthwhile.  If I have to come back I'm going to try a curry dish.
