We were in Paris for a weekend and based on our budget and our location, La Casse Noix seemed to be jumping off the page at us. We got into town about 1pm on a Friday and looking up on their website we realized we were probably going to be out of luck. It is closed Saturday and Sunday, and without reservations, we weren't very hopeful for a table.
Since the Eiffel Tower was on our list, we stopped in on our way there. We were told they were finishing up lunch (every table was taken) and that for the evening, they only had a 10pm seating available. Sold! We didn't think we'd get in, so this was definitely good news.
Our travels ended that day with being very tired and a cheese plate served with a bakery worth of bread and a couple of drinks. By the time we got back to the hotel, we were wiped. A day that began before 5am was taking its toll and a nap was in order. We could have easily cancelled, we were tired and groggy, and full of bread and cheese. A nice dinner wasn't at the top of the list anymore, but since we made reservations, we felt obliged to honour them.
We are glad we did. 10pm and the energy and hustle and bustle gave us our second wind.
Basically there is a a la carte menu with app., main and desert with about 5 choices each. In addition, there is a blackboard brought to your table with a similar number of choices.
We were next to the kitchen which was a treat, and everything coming out of their looked to be something special. Our plates were something special. alive with flavour. Every bite was to be savoured...from start to finish.
Price came in well under 100 Euro with wine and water and was best meal we had in Paris. Service was a little bit rapid fire, not rushed, maybe just brisk. We were tired and it was late, so it suited us fine.
