We have eaten at many restaurants in Paris. This is a favorite.
Really warm hearty food.
Bone marrow appetizer - was broiled and served in the actual bone, split in two. Interesting and tasty!
If you like kidneys this is apparently the place to go. (We both hate kidneys so did not order it but that's the word . . . )
My favorite thing there is the Coq au Vin. So good I actually went back to have it again. The sauce is so thick and meaty that I call it the French version of Mole sauce. Really, really tasty. Save bread for soaking it up . . . it is that good.
My wife had veal liver one visit and loved it and the most recent time a steak. All good.
Apparently their Beef Borgegnion is out of the world as well (we were with relatives who ordered that and they loved it.)
Deserts are great as well. Though have to admit they looked good. We are always too full to have desert.
Finally with our meal we had a really great (actually quite unbelievable) red wine for 22 or 24 euros. I can only think of a few times I actually took a picture of a bottle of wine to remember to order it. This is one of those occasions. Crue de Paradise Maderan 2004. Though honestly perhaps it was just the setting that made it so great as it is not that expensive on the Internet. But it was very tasty and went well with the meat.
