The place doesn't look like much from the outside. Crowded bar, a few tables outside, menu on the blackboard. But the brisk trade inside and waiting patrons should let you know this is not a spot to be missed. I've read that it's one of the more casual bistros opened by renowned Chef Christian Constant, who also owns Les Cucottes down the street. On our visit, we ate upstairs in a small area that looks like it used to be an old schoolroom. Tables close together as in most cafes in Paris but it was not a loud or boisterous crowd so we could converse comfortably. I started with the hearts of romaine and mushroom salad and then went on to the roasted chicken with "herby butter". Just as tantalizing as it sounds. My boyfriend had the veal with white beans, and it was to die for. The most tender veal I've ever tasted! For dessert, we split the profiteroles which were essentially drowning in chocolate sauce. In the best possible way. Come here hungry and you will be satisfied. Warning, though, it sets the bar pretty high for your other meals :-) Not open on Mondays, and they don't take reservations, so be prepared for a short wait. Well worth it!
