These are sort of fish rafts topped with some kind of stuffing, but it looks like raw ground beef in this photo. Unfortunately, printing inks being what they were, it looks like Steak tartare au fromage sur poisson. (raw meatloaf with cheese on top of fish. Everything sounds classier en francais, doesn't it?) It doesn't quite look "graced with" the sauce because that's all spilled over the sides and congealed. But you know this dish really made an impact when it was brought to the table. Especially if it was served for guests. They're probably still talking about it.
