We had the rigatoni with Gorgonzola, and chicken with truffle sauce and mashed potatoes. Both were quite good. For dessert, the cream brûlée and the raspberry tart which was wonderful. A nice atmosphere with good and welcoming service. We will return.

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
