Located in the 15 arrondissement, the food haven and untrendy area of Paris, Marie Edith is located on a charming street near the twice a week farmers' market. Proximity shows: vegetables and fruits are farmer-fresh with the best local produce of the day. The restaurant is traditional French with zinc bar and copper pots. When the weather is warm, a few white table clothed tables are outside.
Service and quality of food are far superior to the cost. Our dinner began with an amuse bouche of smoked mackerel on strips of toasted wheat bread and tangy green olives on the side. Next was an appetizer of fat white asparagus (at the market that day) lightly dressed in a balsamic vinaigrette; another was a lightly fried goat cheese perfectly oozing cheese with fresh greens. Main courses included a fillet de boef, fork tender with a crown of champignons, gratin dauphinoise that tasted of good cheese and flavor filled potatoes, along with roasted endive. The canard was juicy and filled with flavor and capped with small berries. Then the desserts: Oefs a la neige, the house specialty , was an airy huge slice of egg white covered in toasted almonds floating in a cloud of cream that was worth every calorie. Another dessert with pears in a perfectly light pastry came lightly drenched in very high quality dark chocolate. Cost: E29 for two courses.
